The chat client is separate. I went here: http://download.cnet.com/IceChat-IRC-Client/3000-2150_4-10587438.html and downloaded that. All you have to do is install and then when it asks you to pick a server you put in 'irc.freenode.net' and then in the chat window you click on that server and click 'connect'. Then you simply type in the little box at the bottom "/join #keirsey" and you'll join our chat group.
If you want to be away you can type "/away" and if you want to just keep it up and wait for people to come online you can go to Options then Ice Chat settings, then click on "Auto-Away" and mess with those settings. You can make it where everytime you minimize it to the tray you'll automatically go into away mode, all it takes to minimize it like that is the little red icon up at the top with two people. If you want to be alerted when someone comes on just go to the Sound Events tab in that same options window and click 'New User notice' and then choose the default sound or you can find one of your own and put it in the right folder. If you need help with that ask me.
