There are many free and commercial board softwares available. The first decision that you have to take is to select the one that suits you.
phpBB is one of the best among them. It's supported in several languages and available free. There are so many hacks that are available also to tweak your forum to your needs.
You can visit phpBB site to download the required files from this link.
http://www.phpbb.com/
You'll find lots of support to understand and answer any question that you may have there.
You will need also to find a host that supports php to install your forum.
Luckily, frihost supports php and offers all you need to install your forum.
BTW. this forum is using phpBB too Smile

Try following n0obie's phpBB installation tutorial.

It should be pretty easy to get started out with phpBB using that tutorial.

1. Ads (i think)
2. You can't modify your forum.

Or use Frihost and either learn new skills or even use a free installion service such as http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-28201.html in the marketplace.
More space, bandwidth, no ads all for free! Wink

Well it's also a perfect way to learn new skills that will be needed in the future if this person continues working with websites.

Invision Power Board is also very good, but it costs. Note: You cannot host IPB on frihost.
