honestly... how hard can it be?

Ok, so off the bat I admit I'm a bit of a noob, so I don't really know what I'm talking about, so pls keep that in mind as you read on.

I am currently developing an teaching/instructional web application. I need to integrate a forum. I don't need a feature rich forum, but I do need to be able to add custom fields, for example....

A users creates a new post, in which the user is seeking advice. Let's assume people reply to the post. The OP'er can then rate the reply as to how useful the reply was. This 'rating' system is a CORE feature of the web app.

I looked in the Codeigniter wiki, and seen 'Freak Auth + Vanilla forum', but looking through the notes, I'm not sure I can include my 'rating' features, so I started to think, how difficult could it really be to 'roll-my-own' non-flat-file, but simple forum?

Experienced developers here may be laughing out loud right now at the audacity of my initial question, but would someone kindly summarise what I would need to consider?
