As Doug May said, you can use a SIP client.  The w3 internal wiki [1] has
some info on possibilities.  I have been using Ekiga [2], which both sets
you up with a SIP address and provides the software to use it.

The active "content meetings" page [3] was updated with that info, and I
have just removed the out-of-date info from the page you linked to [4].
 Perhaps some more clean-up or reorganization would be appropriate to make
the current information the first page you come across, but at least we
shouldn't have inaccurate information distracting you.

Hope to talk to you later,
Amelia
