If you have Linux Hosting package with cPanel as your control panel you will get Fantastico as addon which will help you to install all open source software/forums. If you want you can contact your webhost who can install it for you for free, if you have managed hosting plan.

Using Fantastico you can install required applications easily, no need to be technical expert ;)

If you want to create your own forum, you would need the skill and the time to do so. I have done that (Well, the trivial forum services), but that was not even close to be compared to phpBB or those other major open source forums.

What I ended up doing is using phpBB, changing the style of it and integrating my site's pages into it, so now it works perfectly well.
