Thats a pretty vague order...

The majority of the software available is able to be modified, some are obviously easier than others.

I would honestly say the EASIEST one IMHO is PunBB. You really only have three files that need to be changed to make it look totally different and two of them are CSS files.

Also, you have to look at what you want to pay...

vBulletin, Invision PowerBoard, Burning Board, are examples of some good, but costly software.

PunBB, phpBB2, XMB, SMF are some examples of free software packages.

Out of the commercial packages I prefer vBulletin, out of the free ones I prefer PunBB.

Again, your best bet is to try them out on your server and see if they fit with your plans for your site.

vBulletin gives you access to a demo of the admin area to see if it works for you... do a Google search and I would think you'll find demos for the others as well.
