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.

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.
