SMF is a great forum (free)
PHPBB3 is a great one (I use it myself)
VBulletin is great (paid)
It's not a matter of wether the physical forum is free or paid... I'm talking about subdomain hosted sites which is what the OP is talking about. He wants a generated site for him (aka subdomain hosted) w/o having to pay for his own hosting, etc.
Those sites pretty much always are a big fat fail.
