HT2515 I have a gmail account that is linked to my iChat. I'd like to use the application to do group text chats. I get an error message saying the server does not support group chats. What should I do?

I am not sure Google's Jabber server for GoogleTalk does Group Chats.
This is a Pic from the Psi App about the Jabber.me.uk server
As you can see the app puts up a separate window for Service Discovery
These "extra" items normally also have to be "registered" for.
This server used to run an MSN Transport that I was using.
As you can see it list Conference as "Extra".
The GoogleTalk one is a bit confusing
The Service discovery normally takes the Suffix part of the name. In my case @gmail.com
This is Blank for Service Discovery.
However changing to the talk.google.com server name give me this
Still no option for Transports or Conference options.
This http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/talk/8rJ6M1GkhrU suggests it is not standard in GoogleTalk (via Gmail Login or PC App ?) and needs some Lab item.
