    Can put it where you want it to go. I would recommmend in root. So it would be site.com/forums to get to it

    How do I create a /forum/ directory inside a WordPress install?

    Just like creating a sub directory. If WordPress is on :

    http://example.com/

    vBulletin / XenForo / MyBB / SMF etc. will work fine under :

    http://example.com/forum/

    However you have to work for .htaccess inside /forum/ directory. Forum softwares has pathetic default .htaccess files for pretty permalinks. Worst is of vBulletin. Always check for 404, improper redirects by WP 404 related plugins.
    Safest is sub domain installation.
