Yeah, there is another free one too that I have played around with www.funpic.org, seems pretty decent, and it's free.

I like and use phpBB 3. It isn't officially released yet, but it is in RC4 status. It has a lot of the features of vBulletin, and is still free. Check out my forum, a phpBB 3 forum:

Everyone and their dog uses phpbb because its free and easy to use. You can get pirate copies of vbulletin but you dont get any upgrades and jelsoft are quick at shutting down sites running pirate versions.

Dont get Invision Power Board because its really cluttered and really hard to use, I had the demo and couldnt figure out half of it

Invision Power Board is probably the most flexible thing you could buy. I had a license (that expired) and I loved it while I had it. vBulletin is great for the end user but I don't like the Admin CP interface.

As for Apache, PHP and MySQL, most hosting companies you use will already have it installed anyway. www.dreamhost.com www.1and1.com www.hostgator.com www.siteground.com
