Go to each of the other boards, click on permissions, and for the novice group disallow them being able to start new posts and reply to posts.

Before that, you have to create a permissions/board profile.

You will need two...

One that allows novices to post and one that does not.
You will then go to each board in the modify boards section and set the board to use the appropriate permissions profile.

Now I'm confused.

If I go to any board and click permissions, all my membergroups are listed. I can go to any one of them, click modify and disallow the starting of posts or the replying to posts. I'm not sure why two new board profiles are needed ...

Then you have a mod which allows you to do that... That is not part of the smf default installation.

I don't see any mod that would do it,,, but I do know that what you indicate is NOT part of a default smf installation.

The only thing you can control from the board settings is which group can access/see the board and which permissions profile the board will use.   There is no option to set read/write by membergroup in the board settings

Oh wait! Each of my membergroups are ones I created. And on most I selected 'use unique permissions' so would that be it? And if his Novice group is the same, he should be able to do what I did, right?

No.  The only way to set board level permissions in a default installation is with the use of profiles.

when you use the permissions link next to a board name, if a profile is not being used, you end up modifying the default set of permissions and not permissions just for that board.

got it to work
EXACTLY like I wanted
VEYR VERY VERY CONFUSING on HOW to do this
as is evidenced by the different answers above
(i will document my steps later - )

special thanks as always to my 'pal'
the 'MEAN ONE"

aka Kindred  :-*

his  hints sent me in the correct direction

*************
 found this link online
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/All_about_permission_profiles

also
from the above link
Create a new profile[edit]
If you have had a good look at all the profiles you've already got, and don't see one you like for a particular board, you can create a new one. From Administration Center » Permissions » Edit Profiles , scroll down to the New Profile section, fill in a name for your new profile, choose a profile that is close to what you want to Copy Permissions From as a starting point, and hit the Create button. Then check and edit the permissions for each member group in this profile.

THEN the trick was\
in each Board in ADMIN
click on modify
then edit the permission profile dropdown

above might sound SIMPLE to the Pros
but was tricky (for me) with permissions in boards and profiles and membergroups
