    It depends if you've got hosting space available with PHP and MySQL. If you do, grab phpBB or Simple Machines Forum.
    Otherwise, if you don't have server space and you just want something free and easy, use Forumotion.

    grab a cheap linux + php +mysql hosting solution and drop one of the free forum softwares on it, SMF is good.

    don't bother with the free ones, they suck.
