The logic is very simple - but there is a lot of work to do if you intend to code this up yourself. Many have done it, and there is no reason to think that you can't. But something as complex as a forum is a large undertaking. It is probably better to find an open source forum and encorporate it into your site. There are numerous open source forum projects - some in ASP, some in PHP, Ruby, etc. There must be at least one done in .NET. I think there is a forum module for dotnetnuke, and there are most certainly others. This wrox site seems to use snitz forum, which is written in vbscript for ASP.

We also have a very good ASP.NET book that includes full working forums in it's examples:

ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution
by Marco Bellinaso
ISBN: 978-0-7645-8464-0

See chapter 8 in the table of contents. If you are reasonably experienced with ASP.NET, you should be able to understand this.
