The package you are looking at has not yet been included within ubuntu (as far 
as I can see on my ubuntu 8.04).  What the live chat support does for you is 
what is talked about here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat

What you want to do is:
Start Pidgin (from Applications -> Internet -> Pidgin Instant Messenger),
Add a new IRC account,
Create a Username for yourself,
Set the server to be: irc.freenode.net
Set a password for yourself,
Save and enable the account,

When the account is enabled a message should pop-up letting you know you are 
connected.  You can then type:
/join #ubuntu

You are effectively done, you can ask away.  Just follow the guidelines on the 
page above.

Also if this is your first time in chat rooms I would say that you should not 
ask to ask but just ask.

Phil Hannent
