Its in your control panel already but I have this tutorial which I made that you could follow.
Its step by step and ask if you have ANY trouble, the people here are well versed in the workings of SMF.

What I suggest is that you look into the different systems, by visiting their official websites http://www.simplemachines.org/, http://www.invisionboard.com and http://www.phpbb.com and check which has the features that suit your purpose the best. Also paying attention to what systems the forums that you visit use gives a pretty good idea of what each system can and can not do.
And then, you could just go and install all of them, try them out, use the admin panels and changing the look to your liking... Then just pick the one which you like the most.

I really don't care much for phpBB so if you want a free forum I suggest SMF. Most of the options are pretty self expainitory and the application can grow as you see the need for add-on packages which by the way most are automatically installed and you don't have to know any code. Just download the package and then use the package installer.
By the way, Invision is not provided in Fantastico any longer.
Hope this helps,

If you want a very very bare-bones forum software there are many that don't even use a database, just text files which are incredibly easy to mod and manage which I would recommend, but you'll find them lacking basic features that you need.
