    its childs play, you just need a host with php and a mysql database, upload the files as per the instructions which are provided with it, and thats it.

    A hack site? :p

    Theres plenty around on the net that will host ones for you for fee, and set it all up for you, just some of them come with banners , some dont, just about finding a decent one.

    But google is your friend, and search for free 'phpbb forums', as obviously you have no clue how to make one :)

    Yes invision is good, but if you dont fancy paying 200$ for a lisence, phpbb is the best free web board around, or one of them.
