    I have heard horror stories of getting fancy URL’s working with WP on godaddy hosting, let alone bbPRess. Some relevant posts on godaddy and bbPress that might help you along:

    Searching google or this forum might also have some other things to try with godaddy and bbPress.

    Exactly the same problem? You’re hosted at GoDaddy, and IE will not download rewrite-rules.php? For this problem there is no guide, but it can probably be solved without an expensive programmer :)
