Which version of the OS are you running ?
There is no download since the update to iChat 2.1 in 2004
Each version of iChat goes with a version of the OS (it also has minor updates that come with the OS updates)
Reinstalling iChat up to the Snow Leopard iChat 5 version is done with the Install disks

As the Install disk may have an earlier version of the OS on it (say for instance you are on Leopard and have updated to OS X 10.5.8 and the Install Disk has version OS X 10.5) you will need to run the COMBO version of the Update to the OS to Update iChat before using it.
With iChat 6 you have to use the Recovery process to download the OS again. However this will automatically be the latest version.
