There are instructions for using Facebook Chat with Pidgin at (click the "Pidgin" link).

Note that step 3 is not necessary.

Also note that I believe you must have set a username (for example,
mine is "markdoliner") for your Facebook account before you will be
able to connect. You should be able to set this in the Settings area
of Facebook's website, if you haven't already.
