Know of any decent bug submission databases?

This doesn't have to be anything fancy since very few people are involved in the process and all are intimately familiar with what's going on.  Just needs to be something to organize things and is automated (submission, reporting, etc).

Oh and it needs to be FREE.  Thanks for you help!

I haven't used it but bugzilla gets a lot of positve feedback.

A very good free one that is even better than many commerical ones is scarab.
I just starting hacking a little bit the source code to customize it for a client.

Why does it need to be free?

Is it impolite to use the web forum provided by a company that sells bug tracking software to ask where to get free bug tracking software?

Andrew: I don't know, but that consideration was the reason I did not post anything on this topic a few days back.

That, and I've never tried FogBUGZ or Bugzilla, so I can't really give any helpful recommendation about either.
