1. Gain access to a Mac
2. Start up iChat in Rendezvous mode
3. Have fun!

The main use case for this kind of thing is chatting with people at
events and conferences (I've used it at IETF meetings). It'd be nice
on a LAN, too, but you can just as easily run a little server for your 
workgroup. That's probably a lot easier than hacking a few clients to
run in serverless mode.
