Just go to phpbb, vBulletin or Simple Machines and follow the instructions. Basically you need a host with php and mysql capabilities and then uplodad the forum, change some settings and away you go.

If you have a host with cpanel and fantastico it's even easier. you can install forums with fantastico with very little knowledge at all.

Good luck
