    Well in addition to a program for building the web page, you would normally need software for uploading your website to your web host, something like cuteftp or wsftp.
    You may also need a program for graphics, something like fireworks or photoshop.
    As to the forum software, this site uses vbulletin.com, but there is a free script available at phpbb.com which is quite good as well. It is just a matter of uploading the files to your web host, creating a mysql database and then configuring the script via your web browswer, no seperate program is required.

    Actually you do if you want to use your Dreamweaver program for doing so. There should be instructions in the help files for uploading and updating your website through Dreamweaver.
