There are a number of different techniques that can be used to build a
threaded discussion list.  Rather than choose one or outline them all
here it is better to point you at a relevant thread in the mailing list
archives:

Unless you really want to build one yourself you are probably much
better off using one of the existing open source systems.
A list of PHP projects that you can utilize is available at:
    http://php.net/projects.php
There are many PHP forum packages out there, here are some URLS that
list them:

http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/
Bulletin_Board_Message_Systems/
Some popular packages:
phpBB: http://phpbb.com/
Phorum: http://phorum.org/

There are lot of open source applications that you can you for the 
same. Just type the requirement in Google and choose the best one that 
suits your specific requirement.
