By the way, I use Kopete, which works IMO better across AOL, MSN, Y!.

It usually ships with your distro.

Which one are you using?

I dunno what distro
had too much trouble with windows so put linspire 4.5 on here instead had the gaim fella already here
I was happy to use it and have had no trouble, except can't send pictures, but no biggie
I think I need to register for an account at AOL for the gaim to work, I think thats the trouble.

Linspire is your distro, and I really do not know anything about what comes with it. Does it not have the click and run feature? You can look into it if you are interested in kopete.

You are right about creating an AOL account.

Hope I helped some.
