I need access to chat room software. This will be for a commercial site, but the chat room itself will be free. I have not found a company willing to sell the software for reasonable prices. Can you think of any companies, or generic software for just this purpose

Chat server software is expensive for good reason - it takes a *lot* of man-hours to develop high-performance chat server software.  Solutions under $1000.00 include ...

"Chat Box" (http://www.chatbox.com/software.html)
"Conference Room" (http://www.webmaster.com/)
"Volcano Chat"  (http://www.volano.com/pi.html)

If you don't want to run it on your own server, an excellent option is Chat Planet (http://www.chatplanet.com/) - which will allow you to create a public "channel" for free, a private channel for about $50/year, or a "customized private" channel for bout $300/year (the diufference between a "regular" or a "private" forum is that "regular" forums aren't branded - they run ads for Chat Planet).
