I'm looking for a way to have an online poker night with friends who don't live near me.

We'd like to play texas hold'em. Bonus if we can use mac and windows machines, but windows-only is ok.
The free online poker sites i looked at (e.g. yahoo) didn't seem to have any control over the tables. The pay sites looked like you had to have some cash in your account to get a private table, and then it wasn't clear if there was a rake. (i'm guessing there would be.)
So, is there any software or website out there that can facilitate our game?
(Interestingly the new version of skype comes with "extras" some of which allow you to play games with the people you're chatting with. unfortunately, no poker yet.)
