You can easily download one and customise it yourself...

Well, there is a few ways.
you have to use a forum script, the most popular are

Invision Power Board
SMF (this one i think is new)

They all look the nearly the same, my favourite is PHPBB because Its opens source. This forum ( runs phpBB.

In order to have one off these scripts running you need to find some hosting with php and mysql, otherwise it simply won't run.

Otherwise you can go into this specialized companies that already have the sript installed so u can simply create your forum by clicking next next next next.... They keep the database in their own hosting.
The bad is that they add a banner and u cant access the database yourself.

So this is my recomendation:
If you need a forum now go to and create a forum now... its as simple as click next a few times. At this time you have your problem fixed, but in my opinion you should go as further as the end of this post .

then, after having your forum online running 100%, relax and visit phpbb, vbulletin, etc websites and understand how does the wole thing works.
After you get into it ask for a backup of your database and store it somwhere so u can run your forum in your own hosting.

Note that undestanding how the wole thing works can take a few weeks depending on how familiar with php/mysql basic concepts you are.

PS.: I said but there are thousands of other companies. I picked this one because they are the only one i know that provide you the database if you want to move to your own hosting.
I typed in how to make a forum site on Bing and got all this information for you within 5 seconds. Don't understand why you couldn't find it, but oh well. Here ya go
