It also uses Yahoo and AIM protocols. It's likely already installed or at least on your install Disc(s).

Cool

I recommend amsn becoz it basically doesn't need installation. Try search for it with google and you should be able to get it without problem.

To run amsn, you go into a prompt.

go to the directory where it was installed. In the prompt, type:

./amsn

Hope you like it!
