With a sigfile like I am amazed you need any help at all ;-)
I use White Pine, Cornell, NetMeeting, Icuii and whatever other
vidconferencing software I stumble across. I find them all to be rather
intuitive. Never have trouble with any of them and have been using them
all for a few years now.

I am sure there must be some business's using CUseeme, however, I only
use it for social purposes
I would suggest you just click away and then if you encounter a problem,
try to figure out what is wrong. It doesn't really require much reading
in order to jump right in. It's like a chat room...with pictures and the
conversations are.... ummm.... diverse.
Good luck with this, you can have a lot of fun.
Stick with this list and you'll get a lot of info and tips and more
technical advice than you can use.
