CGI would be an awkward way of doing so....Java is the most efficient way to do it.  There is a Java chat room already out there for use.  It does have some advertising on it but have a look anyway...maybe this can save you the hassle of having to totally re-write one.  And you can put this on ANY WEB PAGE!

Here is the place where you can get the chat room:
http://www.parachat.com/

This is that Java Chat on somebody's webpage:
http://members.xoom.com/RipFire/chat.html

Hope this helps you.

Yes, I know that Chat Setup can be gotten free on the Internet, as I have found another web site at www.beseen.com that gives free chat room. However, I want to know the way to write the code, etc. any ideas?

Commented:
You could try downloading that Java Applet from Parachat and maybe "decompile" it, if that is possible...I'm not sure if you can "decompile" Java...not my specialty  :-)
