Most programs (that I've installed) usually end up in /usr/bin or /usr/local

Have you looked in there?

Also, if you get a little frustrated, you can also look around for gaim, which enables you to use MSN, Yahoo!, AIM and ICQ.

OK, you can start gaim, then go to "Tools -> Plugins"

When that dialog comes up, at the bottom there is an option called "Load" Click on that.

After that, a plugin list will come up with available plugins. The plugins are libxxx where xxx is the name of the service you want to use. libmsn is for MSN, libicq is for ICQ, libyahoo is for Yahoo!, etc.

Once you've installed the plugins, you can go to "Tools -> Accounts' and then when the Accounts dialog comes up, choose "Add" and choose your service with the "Protocol" pulldown menu under the Alias box.

Hope this helps.
