I'll preface my question by noting that I essentially have no experience in Webdesign, but...

I am trying to start a website about sports and I was wondering one would go about setting up a website where you could use the same log-in info to post comments on a blog-based news area of the site and to participate in the forums, much like MyAnandtech/ATforums work.
I plan on using phpBB (www.phpBB.com) as the forum software.

thanks for any help i can get

Well, if you're going to use phpBB and want to integrate that I think the first step is pretty obvious: learn php and start hacking up the phpBB code.

Pretty much. You just need to figure out how it stores the users in the DB and used that format.
