Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Where the heck do I even start this thing? I just need some direction becasue I haven't the foggiest...
It was mostly for one-on-one support chat, but something like This [google.ca] is what I searched for...
There are other solutions for IRC-style chatting software as Java applets as well. :P

[edit reason] fixed blown up link [/edit]
It sounds like you're looking to create a chat or Wiki or some kind of forum-type thing.
Accepting that I am mistaken, but proceeding nonetheless, here are a few links from SourceForge you may find useful:
Open Source Napster Server [sourceforge.net]: The server acts as a broker and search engine for client transfers. It also features group and private chat, similar to IRC.
PHP Open Chat [sourceforge.net]: Web-based chat engine written in PHP. It provides mail, moderating, watch server, privat channels, ignore list, text filters, inline user images and a easy to handle admin tool.
Something like one of those, maybe?
