i don't think you can, because msn uses the netmeeting engine for audio/video, it's a lot more complicated than simple text.
it would be very interesting to hear from somebody who has done this though...

search for "netmeeting linux" in google. I've never tried netmeeting in linux myself, but it might be what you are looking for

sorry, I'm too new in this forum to post links

Gnomemeeting

Gnomemeeting is an H.323 compatible voip client. The only drawback I can find is it does't support application sharing. (yet!)

Hope this helps!

gaim, kopete, yahoo messenger for linux - I've tried them all and none of them have video or voice chat capabilities. I'd love to be able to do this on linux.
