    erm, i would only really suggest amsn & gaim, i use gaim myself, great if you spend the time to tidy it up and personalise it
    er, if your northbridge fan is humming loudly, disconnect it. _dont_ kick the side of the case, it _will_ break it.
    i know :/

    I have slackware on my comp and I use Amsn, which I think it's very nice! . And I really like the tux/linux-skin on it. The tux - pinguin it's so cute! Well, back to the point..amsn has worked very fine with me, it's like running the windows version, it's quite as simple..and it has a lot of new emoticons .
    Love, Peace and Linux
