Full disclosure: I have not installed this software.  I am posting a link here because it looks like it's responsive to your desire to learn about threaded forums.
http://mylittleforum.net/

It's free and open source, so you can read the source code to learn about the data base structure and the PHP programming.  And even though it's free, if you find that you learned from it, it might be nice to make a donation.

Best regards, ~Ray

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversation_threading
Conversation threading is a feature used by many email clients, bulletin boards, newsgroups, and Internet forums in which the software aids the user by visually grouping messages. Messages are usually grouped in a hierarchy by topic, with any replies to a message arranged visually near to the original message
E-E is a forum by the way, but many (like you see at E-E) have moved to a "flatter model" which does not present the conversation as a hierarchy.

several forum products are there to look at - and use as admin.
