Hosting your own forums alongside your application

I’ve got my site running on port 80 at www.mysite.com (dedicated Debian
box running Mongrel)
I’ve got my forums running on port 3000 at www.mysite.com (same box,
running Lighttpt).

Any ideas how I can change the forums to run on port 80 at something
like forums.mysite.com ?

Yep, you’ll want to look into setting up a virtual host for the forums
site that when contacted routes to your forum software.
