Sitemap question

I just uploaded a Google created sitemap to my root directory, and I have a simple question... I think. I have a phpBB message board thru Forumotion.com, which I have a link to on my site. I noticed that the forum doesn't show up on the sitemap, and I am wondering if I should include it, even though it is an external site on a separate server?

Sitemaps are for internal pages only. This is why the messageboard is not included, since it it only a link in your site. External links and pages are not included in a sitemap.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
