You finished the install already, just cd to msn directory and ./amsn enjoy !

I usually make a shortcut on the Desktop for it

Have you already untarred it if so how and where?

Also you might check /home/default if this is where you downloaded and untarred the file there should be a msn folder.

click on your "start" button and then click where it says run, type in /home/default/msn/amsn

Which window manager or desktop environment are you using, gnome, kde, xfce, icewm, if you are not sure which distro are you using?
