BBLinux isn't really a BBS. It is a C program and a few scripts that
allow you to add time limit enforcement to a shell or menu login.
Combined with the BBS-Util package and a menu script, or even Lynx,
you could probably come up with a pretty decent BBS in little time.

Excerpts from the README:

The following collection of files and text will help converting a Linux
system into a BBS in (almost) no time. Most of it a quick hack but should
serve as a good starting point. Any help or improvements are welcome ...
I will try to collect them, incorporate them and make them available in the
same package.
