I use PSI for a client, so some things will probably be different, but 
I hope this helps:

jabber id: (name)@iwethey.org Spaces won't work.
password: of your choosing, there should be something about "create new 
account" which will set your password and create your account once you 
hit the server.
Resource is just a name, no significance.

Once you hit the server, you'll want to use whatever Exodus has to 
connect to groupchat. That's where you tell it to connect to 
ziwt@conference.iwethey.org and you'll then be flying.
