What is your server configuration?
Are you facing any problem to deploy openfire?

I was going to see how well a chat server would run on an old piece of junk system that I like.

Its a modified one of these: http://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/vxl/itona/P3VB.shtml

I have a fresh install of Chrunchbang 11 on it.

I was also thinking about using ejabberd instead of Openfire?

I am new to this so I wanted to just mess-around to learn - nothing important per say.

If you do not want to install openfire because it is too common and you want to learn.
There are many other options.
You can install citadel, MongooseIM, djabberd,psyced .

The source packages are available, they are good to learn.

They are using XMPP(Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol ). An XMPP server provides basic messaging, presence, and XML routing features, you can use to run your own XMPP service, either over the Internet or on a local area network.

Thanks! What about ejabberd? Is that one not actively maintained anymore?
