Dear Karan.

I can still suggest Joomla/Fireboard which is customizable and scales
well. Joomla is also LDAP capable and offers some nice features like
FAQs, News Headings and so on. Fireboard currently works in
compatibility mode on Joomla 1.5 but should do it's job either. I am
personally well known with Joomla Templates.

If you are just looking for a forum, phpBB is very nice. There are
also some Board/Portal attempts available for phpBB like Board3.

Fudforum does not scale so well and is AFAIK text based.

Simplemachines is also nice and there is a portal software available
for it, too.

Best Regards
