I've used PHPBB many times and found it very user friendly and easy to use. I also recommend VBulleting like other users have as it is an excellent forum script. Anybody remember UBB? Ultimate Bulletin Board. . . Back in the day this was the best script in my opinion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_Bulletin_Board

It depends. For a free forum software I'd go with phpBB. For a paid I'd go with vBulletin.
Agreed. When times are tough, free is always good. You won't go wrong with either of these.
