Check this site. Probably the best Wine pages I've seen in getting Windows applications to work under Wine.. http://www.frankscorner.org/

My second question would be, why? Why not use GAIM?

I like Gaim, but I prefer to use the actual MSN messenger with the winks and the nudge. I have tyred to install AMSN Messenger, but I can't, because I cannot install Docker and Sox at the moment. See my Docker and Sox topics if you can help me with that.

By the way that website does not have MSN messenger their.

I would think MSN Messenger then is tied to much into the OS itself then to be able to use Wine..

Well if The Evil IE can work on Linux then surely MSN messenger can. In fact there is another program like WInetools that said it would install MSN messenger on the site for it.

Well then, start searching and reading... I don't use IM's personally, they're only meant for people to distract one another..

Or for people to chat to each other with. Also for stupid girls 11-15 to send chain letter type instant messages. Young girls and their stupid chain letters and chain letter type instant messages.
