There is a pretty good free one proboards.com. This is easy to set up. You can view mine for example at: browserboards.proboards40.com .

PS: Mine took about 30 Minutes.

I think you want something to host like vBulletin. click here download the software (free) then download and ftp client, such as smartftp. Next you need a host, for free hosting, and very good hosting if I may add click here? you have to apply for free hosting, but just tell em' your not gonna use your board for illegal stuff and tell them what you told us. They will most likly say you apply, and give you free hosting. Next, wow, PM me, and I will give you some more details, and if you want I can help set it up. Or, if you don't want to host one go to here they offer great IPB boards, that you don't have to host. Downside? Its IPB 1.3!

By the way, if you use Firefox, you can get an extenion called "FireFTP" that is the easiest thing to use.

Go to invisionfree.com. You can quickly register a board and set it up very easily. You can get you board up to scratch in an hour max there since IF 1.3's easy.

Its free i used to use it alot. :tazz:

I'd have to recommend invisonfree. Invision boards are the most common and are very easy to use. I am a member of 6 forums and I moderate 2 and all of them are invision boards.
