Freenode is for IRC, which is sort of like chat rooms. You should try to join irc.freenode.net (server) and get a unique nickname. When you have that up, go to the #ubuntu-chicago channel. 

You may want a better IRC client than pidgin. There are a lot of choices in the repositories.

I am not at my desk so I can not include helpful links but if you wait for some other users, they will help. (I'm looking at you Jim!)

I have been using Ubuntu for 2 months now. So far I really like it. I am trying to find other people who use it. And learn more. 

What is chat.freenode? 
I have installed pidgin, but I have no clue how to become a registered user, or how to access this site.

Could some one please give me instructions.

Thank you,
