I wouldn't use Licq or GnomeICQ (although I would in the past), as far as I know they don't support the new protocol yet. Try ickle - it does.

Search on freshmeat.net for import tools, if you can't find any you are stuck with manually entering them.

The newer versions of windows based icq clients have the option to let the icq servers backup your contactlist.
I don't know if the linux versions of icq support this functionality yet but if they do you can load your contact list from the icq servers right into your linux icq.
