What about a wiki? I personally don't like forums because I prefer the 
content pushed onto me and then let Mozilla do its magic with sorting 
and stuff. When I do have a problem however I first do a google unless 
there is a wiki present. Nine times out of ten, when users can post 
their own answers and help evolve documentation online it helps 
everybody, keeps everything organized and is usually much more up to 
date. BTW that also means that the main developers don't have to worry 
about keeping documentation up to date :-) That alone should be worth it 

Just my .02

"In Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, 
murder, bloodshed -- they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the 
Renaissance.  In Switzerland they had brotherly love, five hundred years of 
democracy and peace and what did that produce?  The cuckoo clock."  -Orson 
Welles, script of _The Third Man_ (1949).
