BBS were quite a revelation to me when I first got a 2400 baud modem. In 
any case, today I'm pretty sure most people don't use dial-up except for 
connecting to router consoles. The present equivalent would be a 
CMS(Content Management System) or forum. So you could take a look at 
Drupal, Mambo or Wordpress on the CMS side of things. The popular forums 
are phpbb and vbulletin so you may want to check those out. If you're 
really talking about dial-up BBS, please disregard this post.
