You need to install a mod . Mods can be found at www.invisionize.com.

I dont think invisionfree allows you to add mods though

When they switch you to version 2.0, you will have an Online Status Indicator.

No your provider will need to upgrade it. You should ask them.

So I should ask invision free about up-grading my message board?

You would need to contact the host http://members.freewebs.com/contactUs.jsp

2.0 invision free is not released yet, but if they are using that software, I would assume they are a registered customer and would get 2.0 once it is finalized.

Another question. I am trying to get on the ASAP thing. Need to finish my training of HJT first. Anyways Someone told me they could drop me in the future. Since it is free its on there host and if im draining bandwidth like this board does on a free version then I read they can dump me.

So........

How much would a board like this cost software to make it? I can get a website tohost it on right and just use the software? Is that how it works?

Well, that would depend on the software you want to use on the site. "Invision Power Board" is not free so you would have to pay a fee to get it. Lifetime License = $199.00
or One Year License = $69.95.

There are free bulletin boards out there, for example http://www.phpbb.com/ is a very good system too. The big thing you would need is to make sure of is get a hosting account that has a MySQL database included. It is pretty much the required aspect to setting up a board on your site.
