    Place the file as is into your plugin directory. Do not rename it.
    Under your wordpress admin panel, go to Manage > Shoutbox and click to install.
    To display the shoutbox on your blog simply place <?php shout_box() ?> where you want it to appear.
    You might want to edit the CSS to suit your layout.

    That's fairly straightforward. After you've installed and activated it, you just place this piece of code:
    <?php shout_box() ?>
    wherever you want your shout box. For example - sidebar.php or footer.php or in a page. Wherever you want to call it.

    It depends on where you want your shout box.
    Assuming you've installed and activated it per instructions...

    Got to:
    admin -> presentation -> theme editor
    Note - (theme files must be chmod 666 to edit)

    If you want it in your sidebar - click on "sidebar" on the right side of the screen. This opens sidebar.php to edit.
    Now find where you want your shout box. For example if you want it under your search box - find the search code:
    <div class="sb-search"><h2><?php _e('Search'); ?></h2>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/searchform.php'); ?>

    Right below this, put your shoutbox code inside a div like this:
    <?php shout_box() ?>

    Now if you want like a Shoutbox "page" go to:
    admin -> write -> page
    Give your page a title like "Shoutbox".
    Now in the text entry box put your shoutbox code:
    <?php shout_box() ?>
    Click save and that will do it.

    If you still can't figure it out, contact me through my registered site (click on my member name) using the contact link at the top of my blog and I'll help you out.
