Welcome to WebmasterWorld, makhmalee. phpBB might be a good start. It's by far the most popular open source forum, and there are plenty of hacks written for it.

as the above post suggests I'll back it up and say that phpBB is the right way to go.

there are billion of choices!
the most common is phpBB... with all the features that you might need.
for a simpler forum, with less functions but very fast, try punBB

I've been using Babbleboard of late, its quite a new and upcoming forum software, but its great in that its very fast with light load on the server and is developed by people that have been using forums for years as users, rather than as webmasters, so although its got alot of good features from the admin perspective, alot of thought goes into features from the users perspective as well, which is great.
