That's why we made a CDROM called REPOS.

With the CDROM that we build, called Erlang REPOS, the server is 
zeroconf. Just put the CDROM in your harddrive (Windows, Linux, MacOS) 
and launch ejabberd. This is a one minute operation and client can then 
connect to the server and start chatting.
Nothing more to do. Nothing to install on the harddrive (However, the 
data are created in the temporary directory and reused on restart). No 
config file to deal with.

Please, tell us if this is not the case or if you would like us to 
package it differently.

The CDROM ISO image is available at:

Version 1.1 is for now the latest version.

The CDROM contains various other Erlang software. Please tell us also if 
you would like us to distribute a Jabber only stripped version of this 

I hope this helps,
