-Flat forum is one where each message is added onto the end of the discussion , normally it is like  phpBB and vBulletin

-Threaded , you need re-open the entire thread everytime to find what is the latest replies are. so, clicking is very hard. take a look at MySQL forum
also ref, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Threaded_discussion

more at , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_forum_software#Flat_vs._threaded

mostly people use FLAT way.
