    PHPBB is relatively easy to configure, and works well. Many Hosting companies, like Godaddy will install all the necessary backend components. All you would have to do is tell them where you want them to install it eg. www.yoursite.com/forum.

    Hope this helps

    I recently set up a discussion forum at www.freeforhosting.com

    Took about 1/2 hour to be live.
