I have been using skype for some time but I wanted to start using iChat for screen sharing. So I opened up iChat for the first time and followed all the instructions and all I get is the Bonjour window. I can't add buddies, I can't do anything. Whats the deal, I have a .mac account?

Thanks,
Vnote

You aren't using AIM, just the AIM account within the iChat app

It's a Mac. Not a MAC. MAC is an acronym for Media Access Control, a network thingy whippersnappers can understand.
