I suggest you go create your own small chat first (your own protocol)... where you can connect and recieve commands through telnet or something... later on you take on a familiar protocol. If you  really want to be familiar with the latest hype... do your chatclient in Ajax. In that case you would only have to do use Erlang (server side) and XHTML+JavaScript
