Yeah...I use here both GAIM and AMSN, it works perfectly. What's the trouble?

No, trouble, Rodrigo(yet). I'm a Linux newbie, have never installed a Linux OS and would like to know if there is a preferable instant messenger for DSL (or other distros).

I use Yahoo Messenger on Windows XP and like the option of talking with someone using a microphone. Is that possible with DSL?

Microphone? yeah, of course. I would strongly recommend you to use Skype then.
IMHO, By far that's the best option for voice over IP.
