Not on the host you are at.

Unfortunately, FreeWebs does not offer these functions.

Dave was saying that to setup a phpBB board, you will need PHP (which your host provides, usually) and mySQL ( a database, comes with some hosting packages). It seems your host does not provide these.
If you have, somewhere, a host with these features (rapidly becoming standard features, tbh) then its very easy to setup on of these boards. Firstly, they come with a very good set of instructions. Secondly, there is a huge community of people to help you install @ www.phpbb.com/phpBB .
I have installed a LOT of phpBB boards. You upload, fill in one web form with your details, then you delete two directories and you are done. It really is that easy.
