phpBB is open source and has a great modding community, and it's free, but it's definitely not the best. I prefer forums run by vBulletin (like this one).

i used "textfileBB" it was really easy... upload, run the setup... and there it goes... no sql or anything...

if you want to see it in action (i just created it), goto "http://jammedcode.ulmb.com/textfileBB_v1p0p19/index.php"

cheers,
code jammer

1) vBulletin is the best paid, but it's worth going for it is you will be using all the multiple nerd knobs, which is something that not everyone needs, has great community support and there are lots of mods made by users.
2) phpBB - free stable forum script. Lots of good and heavily populated forums exist on phpBB.
There are excellent phpBB hosting accounts from Serverpoint.com, Siteground.com, Webhostingbuzz.com.
