Could you post the full call trace from ULS, which goes with the error message? There should be information about from which template the error was raised. –  Andrey Markeev Jun 13 '12 at 20:21
    
it is in this post sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/38414/… –  Brenton Pierce Jun 13 '12 at 20:22

Inside your RootTemplate (name="View_Thread_Default_RootTemplate"), you have <xsl:attribute name="class">, but you cannot use xsl:attribute without a parent tag. That is what causes the error.

To fix it, you should either remove the <xsl:attribute> tag, or wrap it to some HTML tag (i.e. <div>).

After wrapping to <div>, the error dissapears and I was able to get the following resulting view of the discussion board (using your XSLT):

enter image description here

The final code for the RootTemplate:

  <xsl:template name="View_Thread_Default_RootTemplate" match="View[List/@TemplateType='108']" mode="RootTemplate" ddwrt:dvt_mode="root" xmlns:ddwrt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/runtime">

      <iframe src="javascript:false;" id="FilterIframe{$ViewCounter}" name="FilterIframe{$ViewCounter}" style="display:none" height="0" width="0" FilterLink="{$FilterLink}"></iframe>
    </xsl:if>
    <div>
      <xsl:attribute name="class">
        <xsl:choose>
          <!-- Any time we display 0 items in a view = class="ms-viewEmpty" -->
