drupal is far from easy in terms of setup.  Once you get it setup though 
then it's not too bad.  You don't have to use another package for the 
forums as drupal has some built in as well as several modules as well.  
This means we don't have to have yet another package to maintain and 
setup(phpbb isn't that easy either).  I would move the entire website to 
the same package instead of splitting it and generating more 
administrative overhead.

Wordpress is an option as is joomla and e107.
