I have a Gmail account. I have configure it with my iChat. I can do normal chat, but I can not do voice chat with my other friends who have a Gmail account or are using Google Talk. So, how can I configure my iChat to do voice chat with them?

You need iChat as a client on both ends. After this it will be automatically available.

You need Google's voice and video chat plugin

Then you should be able to voice (or video) chat with your Gchat friends
