=========================================================
Are you talking about a server that's delivered as installed software,
and having a forum local to the server that would be accessible only
to that particular customer's employees?

... I'm really interested in the idea of setting up topic forums, but
for proprietary user communities.  That is, for a product that is
delivered as a server, the help is served up from the same source as the
GUI. So I'd like to see a topic forum that isn't moderated, but that is
contained by that specific server.  ...

ANSWER:
That's precisely what I'm talking about. The GUI is served and the docs are served.  I'd like a forum to be served...  Looking for open source if possible. 

But then it gets to other questions.  What's the appropriate level for the forum -- Per Topic?  Doesn't that depend at least a little bit on how many topics you have?  Do people really use this capability?  Does it need moderation?
