Please reply to the mailing list instead of to me directly (so that
others can help and/or see the question and answer).

You would just create an account in Pidgin, set your status to
Available, then you should see other people on your network in your
buddy list (and they should see you).

There is no real setup apart from adding an account.

You probably will need to restart Pidgin after installing Bonjour.
