Need help creating forum on smartftp

Recently ive been forced into creating a website in my e-business university class so ive decided to build a guild website for WoW (world of warcraft) and every guild website needs a forum. I was going to use's forum tools but I'm having trouble creating a forum with it. I guess I'm a newb when it comes to building forums, I have the files on my hard drive but am not sure what to do with them to create a forum. Would anybody mind giving me some kind of walkthrough on how to put them on my site, thx.
