Ive d-loaded the PHPBB and put the unzipped folder in a folder I created on the website I want it, and then started to run the install after typing in the Addy for that. And it says I need a bunch of Server/database info, which of course I dont think I would have.

I tried this first before I posted

What is the Advanced 1 click (cause I dont see if on the site) and what is the diff I have it?

Just follow the One-Click Install form and when you get to the part that says Install to: select your domain and enter talk in the box provided. Then just continue on with the form, creating a database, etc.
