If you have a Gmail account for email, you automatically have a Jabber
account since Google uses the same address for email and IM. So for
instance I have a Gmail account "stpeter at gmail.com" (though I don't use
it much) and I can use that same account for IM. To do that in iChat, I
would set the "Jabber ID" to be "stpeter at gmail.com" under the "Account
Information" tab. Make sure that under the "Server Settings" tab you set
the server to be "talk.google.com".
