I have worked hard, creating instructional windows with actual details in it to aid anyone with any setup questions - you find it at the top of this forum and a link on the main screen where Fat Beeman is mentioned in the news.
Every evening many many people are there to help you setup Ventrilo's settings and we even offer microphones to those needing one and you are always welcome to converse in text alone.
Fat Beeman chooses TEXT CHAT but takes all questions, either in voice or text, as many members use either or both text.
I don't think I can make it any easier - the installation is easy enough, setup takes only a minute and once setup no changes needed. Take the time to read the install program, only a meg big and uses very little resources.
