vBulletin is software you have to pay for, but http://www.phpBB.com is free.

http://www.phpBB.com is free.I've used phpBB before - it seems pretty good. The next version should be even better.

I think that Invision Power Board (http://www.invisionboard.com/) is pretty good, I think you can download a free version of it.... but the site seems to bury it away.

With these boards you will need a host that supports PHP and MySQL, which wont be free. If you need a board that is hosted elsewhere, you'll find that: 1 - It'll be covered in advertizments, and 2 - that google has a whole lot of them (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=free+hosted+message+boards)

Any problems? :)

Try proboards.com, it's remotely hosted and not as sophisticated as some others, but it's free.
