Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Kopete is development software, the release you have may be buggy. If you can use IRC try asking in #kde-users on freenode. Otherwise, can you use MSN on that machine on Windows? It may be something to do with your internet connection on Linux. Does everything else seem to work ok?
yeah, everything is just ok, surf net no problems.... the msn messenger at my windows works perfectly...... just feeling it will be great if i also can use msn messenger in linux, coz all my buddies use that......
I can't think what could be causing that, except a bug in kopete then. Try talking to them on IRC. Do you know how to do that? Alternatively try a different chat app. Gaim is OK, you could try a Jabber client as well. There are several public jabber servers with good msn transports, that'll let you on (as well as getting you an account on a cool chat network). See jabber.org
