Yes, if you install script from scratch you need to create database, username and password manually

as I said you need to create database for that include phpbb. to create database is the same as create other database, visit here (http://www.vodahost.com/DemoDemo/cpanel_xskin/cpanel_xskin_mysql.htm)
once you create database then enter it to the installation proccess
Database Hostname: localhost
Database Username: username you made
Database Password: your password
Database Name: Name of database connected to username

hope will help
