yeah that is what they mean. in wherever you control your site there will probably be a place where it says scripts or addons and then it will install whatever ones you want. Most forums require sql databases so your hoster probably gave you some.

Make sure you find a host that is CURRENT with his updates (security issues) and uses fantastico to install the included scripts.

Are you sure the list of programs includes vBulletin? I doubt that because its a paid script. $160 for owned licenses, and $85 for leased licenses. (You may want to check again, they might have a cracked copy). phpBB should definitely be on the list.
