    I have just hooked up iSight on my iBook and I have no problems seeing and talking the person on the other end, but I was wondering if you can tell me if it's possible to link other people for a conference call?

    Thanks

    Look at the grid at the bottom of this page:

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/ichat/

    You can video conference if and only if the initiating user has a G5 or a dual G4. So you will not be able to initiate from your iMac. If one of your iChatAV partners has a G5 Mac, then you can have her/him initiate, and invite you and the other person/people.

    Assuming you have an iMac after the very first version (i.e. ?1GHz), you can initiate audio conference calls.
