If you installed the RPM, the documentation and list of commands are in
/usr/share/imcom-1.32.  I think it is in the same place if you installed the
source, but I know for sure that it will be in the doc directory in the source

imcom -c will create your profile and register an account with the jabber server
of your choice.

The documentation I've seen isn't very clear for that.  I think the man page
does mention it, but I'm not sure.  Typing imcom alone expects an already
existing account.  Typing imcom -c or imcom --create will create a new account.

once you start imcom -c, just follow the prompts.  It will register you and
create your local profile.  Then just type imcom to run the program and /help
inside the program for help.  You can also look in the documentation mentioned
above for a more detailed list of commands.
