xchat is probably the best as far as graphical interfaces and setup goes, so it's just standard. I've never tried BitchX but this is usually second in line by popularity.

x-chat is easy fast reliable fully featured and graphical, bitch-x is terminal based, you need to know commands, moderate to learn, great for server

Ok now i have a problem i downloaded the file xchat-2.0.4-0.i386.rpm from the xchat website so i run that and it comes up with a n error stating that

"the signature of the package 'xchat-2.0.4-0.i386.rpm' is not correct.
No GPG signature in package

um...you didn't double post.

You need to download all of these libraries that were mentioned. You can download them from the redhat website, I believe. Search under packages for "gtk" &c...Or download the source from their respective websites.
