can i expect to see spiders such as Google, yahoo, bing etc. showing up to view my forum,?? of course i would like to be ranked, so as to attract new members. How does this work??? Ive already signed up with those search engines, now what???
Your forum is still quite small. When you get more members and posts, the bots will start scanning your forum. Read this for more information about bots: http://help.forumotion.com/t55170-bots-who-and-what-they-are

when i do the robots txt thing, why does it show that google is not on the list of robots that will scan my forum??? also i dont think Bing, Yahoo, or any of the big ones are allowed????
Robot Text tutorial doesn't do much but tell you its there. Bing, MSN, Yahoo and Google are allowed.
