Just a quick question - when software updates are provided, can they be installed without risk of losing the existing categories, fora, topics and posts?

Also, is there any way of backing up/restoring the categories, fora, topics and post information?

There's no facility for backup, but the system is self-healing and self-updating so it will update with everything preserved (even if list structures change).

we persuade Sharepoint to store each WSS site collection in a serparate SQL database.

What about making a site collection for Forums? we could then backup the whole site and it should be fairly easy to restore.

We could also set up sub sites for private forums etc and use the inbuilt WSS Security as an extra level of separation.

Do you think this would work?

Not sure what you're asking here? If you already have a process for separting the databases in different WSS site collections, how do the forums fit in?
