Hi

Can anyone please tell me how to chat in Linux ? What program do I have to use ? Are those programs installed by default in Linux? I use Redhat Linux 9.0. Can I chat with a person using Yahoo Messenger in Linux ?

Thanks 4 your response

you could use a program such as gaim or kopete and add the yahoo plugin to chat on the yahoo protocol...these two apps support many other chatting protocols also...and there is also more then them two apps, but gaim is probably the most popular, and kopete is kinda an equivalent to the program called trillian in windows...
