So I don't think it's gonna work. You need to install it on the HD in order to install/remove programs, since a CD is read only

If you do install to hd, amsn is the best. It's UI is almost identical to MSN Messenger from windows and it even supports display pics. amsn.sourceforge.net. Don't download it as a package file tho, download the installer and then mke the file executable and execute, it is more up to date than the package files.
