    Whenever I attempt to enter a chat room, I see an outline of the box, and then a red X in the corner. This is the case with The Dude Pit chat, with Talkbass Chat, and any other chatroom I attempt to enter. Is there something I can do to enable these chat rooms?

    Most likely you don't have Java installed, go download and install it. If that doesn't work...erm...yeah, tell me.

    You're only going to get the Macromedia plugins there (Shockwave and Flash and such, Well worth it, but not the problem here.)

    You're going to want to get and install the Java Runtime environment which you can get here:
