I believe they're enabled by default. You have to disable them if you don't
want them used.

Discussions can be enabled/disabled by going to the Portal MMC plug in.
- Go to your SPPS server (the console), and run
"SharePoint Portal Server Administration" that it
should have placed on your desktop.
- Right-click on your workspace  and select Properties
- Go to the "Subscriptions/Discussions" tab
- Check or Uncheck the two items:
[x] enable  web discussions  in this workspace
[ ] Enable search and indexing of discussion items

However, you have to manually enable searching the discussions since
discussions of a document are not tagged with authentication information.
IE, if you had a sensitive document that only "VP" group could
read/edit/view, and they discussed that document, the discussion itself is
auto-published and viewable by Everyone even though the source document is
