You have following options
1.) Setup your own IRC Server (like Unreal IRCD www.unrealircd.com) and configure it for your needs*
2.) Register a Channel on an existing IRC Network (e.g. EFNet www.efnet.org)*
3.) Use an existing Chat Community like www.spinchat.com or

* Note that Users will need an IRC Client like mIRC (www.mirc.co.uk) or irssi (www.irssi.org) to connect to the IRC Server. See here for more details about IRC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat

Don't use IRC, the learning curve for someone who isn't technically minded can be troublesome. Here is a link to a site which gives you 6 different alternative tools to create a free chat room.
