The place where my jabberd server runs is a Pentium 200 MHz with
SuSE 8.0.  If I had to, I could upgrade to SuSE 9.0.

Maybe this is a great idea but unfamiliar territory for me so that is
why I didn't think of anything like that.

You don't know this place :-(  I still have a Sparc LX in my lab.  Many
of the users in another building have Sun Ultra 2 with a really OLD java
and are just too lazy to get it updated

This might be a great idea.  Can you give a little more detail on how to
do this?  What does my server need?  When you say the old Sun user logs
in, just what do you mean?  He still has his desktop but now has an
extra window running this other connection?
