Any help?

I read this at the bottom of Trillians Website:
http://www.trillian.im/learn/tour-chat.html

"Chat with a Big Group" is the area.
I just don't know how to do it.

I dont think yu can join public rooms from trillion.
Only your accounts with the Yahoo windows live etc.
Go to the community section on your dashboard, click the public rooms section, then manage rooms. You will be taken to your public rooms page,
Add a Yahoo Chat Room to Your Favorites

Okay, Directly from Trillian.im which is the official Trillian website, I have Trillian Astra Pro (legit).
On their website (At the bottom), they say:

Public Chat Rooms   [Improved to be better in Trillian Astra]

Despite the apparent lack of sensible conversation inside, Trillian grudgingly supports Yahoo! Chat Rooms. You can also navigate the spooky ghost world of Jabber/XMPP chat rooms with ease!

I know this has to be possible based on that information.
Any other ideas?
I have Contacted Support for Trillian Astra about this issue.
The solution is:
Yes you can do so and very easily.

"Click on the Yahoo! red dot on your Contact List and choose "Join a Chat...".  A window will open where you can select the room you'd like to join."

Trillian Astra Does Support Yahoo Chat Rooms, I have tested tested and this works.
