    I'm not sure if this helps, but if you're using AOL IM (AIM), you'll get an error similar to what you're describing if you've logged in and out several times within a brief period (10-minutes or so, I don't know exactly).

    It's happened to me when opening and closing iChat repeatedly over a short period of time. Try just sitting back for a little bit, waiting and then see if you're able to login.

    What IM service are you actually using with iChat? (AIM, Google Talk, etc.)

    If by any chance your Buddies are not displaying and you are reset Available several times to try and get them to Display before getting the message - check iChat > Preferences > Accounts that the Buddies are not all Blocked or the Allow Specific option is not in use with no Buddies in the list.
