Hi,
iChat must match the OS you are On.
If you are running Snow Leopard then you need the Snow Leopard Install DVD to get iChat 5
If you are running Leopard then you need the Leopard Install Disk to get iChat 4
In each case you NEED to run the COMBO of the Update Level you are up to.
(Either the COMBO for 10.5.8 if in Leopard or  the one that takes you to 10.6.7 if Snow Leopard (Presuming you are as Up to Date as you can be) )
