I've just been looking into this and have some working solutions but  
no tutorials yet. However as a quick summary - I have used both  
Debian & Slackware distros with:
	jabberd-1.4.3 and jabber-muc-0.6.0
	jabberd14-1.6.11 and mu-conference-0.7

Probably the latter combination will be a better long term bet.

The jabberd component does the IM style stuff; mu-conference is what  
supports the chat rooms (AG venues).

Basically, compile the jabber & muc components. Then configure them -  
thats what took me the most time. Each component has its own xml  
configuration file; they know about each other via an additional  
<s2s> section in jabber.xml. You'll also need to enable ssl on port  
5223 in jabber.xml and provide a certificate location in there too (I  
used an AG server certificate I happened to have on hand which seems  
to work OK).

Feel free to email me directly for specific details as you need them.
