Gaim, http://gaim.sourceforge.net should do...it can handle more than just MSN too

EDIT: http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php has RH9, Fedora etc...download

um..just as a by-line: if you're having trouble d/loading using linux, how are you planning on using msn messenger? And I would suggest amsn - it's very easy, doesn't even need an install, just extraction. The source is 1.08 Mb.,

yes, amsn is extremely similar to the windows version...has a lot of features that are cool.
Gaim is nice but amsn is wicked cool.

I never got amsn work... after a while, though, I stopped using msn totally (there are so many better ways ) I tried it first too..don't still know what went wrong.

what's the problem downloading with your linux?

Ya, let's get the download issue fixed first, you dont want to bypass that and keep trying to work around it.

BTW, I agree with using Gaim, it's great!

compu73rg33k this is supposed to be a fairly free world... not that I'd support microsoft, but it's none of anybody's business if somebody wants to use msn...

the main thing I hope is that we can solve the d/load problem carlgulliver100 said he has.. problems are, after all, made to be solved
