I wish people would stop the trash posts.  This is a thread about 960.

I just started playing live 960 against the computer and find that either the chess.com 960 program does not know the correct rules for castling, or I don't.  

Yes it is probably me.  

But if I move my king to g1 or c1, and there are no pieces between the king and the rook on that side, shouldn't that mean castle?

To castle in chess960, select the king and then select the rook.
