I have to agree.... I recently learned of ejabberd a couple of days ago, 
and installed it on my Linux Fedora 7 system via an rpm.

However, now I can't figure how how to start it .... I'm all in favor of 
anything that makes that process easier for ejebbered newbies like me... :-)

Apparently there is a web interface to it on port 5280, but it does not 
appear to be functional because I always get "timed out" when I try to 
connect... yes, the firewall has been adjusted to allow port 5280....
