phpBB is a good forum. You need PHP and MySQL to have it, if you are running it on your own system. Apache is a good.

But that's what I think. I'm sure there are other alternatives out there, and it all depends on the language you wish to have the forums in.

phpbb is the best i know about, but there are many non well known ones which i'm sure can be better, maybe because less people have the source so less people can study it for hacks. I wouldn't open a forum, unless it's for a community or about something relatively new, otherwise people will be less likely to frequent it. But try it out anyway.
