Here is a quick rundown of steps (I'm travelling so this won't be extremely detailed)

  1. Setup your development environment as instructed here http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Resources/Wiki/Page/development-environment.aspx
  2. Install the 5.0.1 install package of AF
  3. Setup tortoisesvn 
  4. Right click on your desktopmodules/activeforums folder
  5. Choose SVN checkout
  6. Point to https://activeforums.svn.codeplex.com/svn and setup the trunk folder to point to your desktopmodules/activeforums folder
  7. Get latest
  8. Build in RELEASE mode to create a new package, build in Debug mode (attach to process) to debug, you can't hit F5 to run the website in debug, I will look into why this is 

Hope that helps
