Recommend a good and very simple .Net forum

Hello.  I need a simple forum that will run under IIS.  I tried YetAnotherForum and never got it to work right.  The machine is Windows XP -- not a server.  The forum is a simple, in-house users' group to facilitate idea-sharing and tips between about 30 people in the building who use LaserFiche software.  The guy who will be administering it is even less .Net informed than I am, so simplicity is key.  Nothing fancy.  Just a place for people to post questions and answers.  Heck, security can be as simple as checking usernames and passwords against a flat text file.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

nmarun: The guy who needs the forum wants it to be hosted in-house.

Espavo: ASPNetForum costs $99.  This solution has to be free.

emoreau: The only forum in there is YetAnotherForum and I never had luck with it.  I kept getting all of these database errors.
