Forget about DimDim (they forgot about you anyway!). This TKLPatch will convert turnkey-core-beta-lucid-x86 image to a BigBlueButton appliance which is a wonderfull web conference system that integrates 14 opensource projects and is being actively developed. It has integrated webcam support, VoIP, Desktop Sharing, and all the features needed for this type of software.
Developers also included a web front-end in past versions, but it's being dumped in favor to develop the API, but some examples are included in how to use the API to manage the rooms and private conference.
