Question Talk command doesn't work!

I use Fedora Core 3. When i try to talk with another user ("talk <user>") i get the following error message: "Error on read from talk daemon: Connection refused. Press any key... ]" and then appears "[Checking for invitation on caller's machine]". That's all. Any idea? Thank you.

Do you have a talk daemon running?
