You can put a shout box in your Header, your Footer or a Board Description area

To do it in your Header or Footer go to:  Admin > Manage Styles > Edit Header/Footer
To do it in a board description create a board for the shoutbox,  paste the shoutbox code in the boards description area.     Its nice to do it this way as you can limit who can see it by the boards permissions

You will need to sign up for a shoutbox/chatbox someplace and get the code:

     Here is a list of chat/shout boxes:
     
     www.cbox.ws
     www.yellbox.com
     www.myshoutbox.com
     www.shoutmix.com
     www.shoutbox.us
     www.tag-board.com
     www.tagboards.tk
     www.tagboardsite.com/   
     http://xat.com/

I tried xat out of curiosity a long while ago.. seems their site does that often.
I guess all you can do is try it at another time and see if you can do it or try
another chat box  ;)

There are many that let you edit the size of them, colors, etc.
cbox is great for that.. you can change it quite alot.
You DO have to click Refresh to see new posts (unless you pay for it)
But all in all it is a VERY good chat box.  
You can use your own smileys.
You can ban people (by IP)  if needbe.

That would be a matter of personal preference  ;)
I like cbox.  Not crazy about the ones with the crazy backgrounds, and allowing the world in them.
