Using a webcam to talk to people on Windows

I have family over seas who use Windows and I would like to be able to use my webcam to communicate with them. I used Yahoo! or MSN Messenger to do it on Windows, now I am looking for a piece of software that will let me do the same thing from Linux (ZenWalk). Preferably without them having to do much on their end, as they are not the most computer savvy people in the world.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, I'm not having much luck with google.

Mercury is an MSN Messenger replacement that supports most of the functionality, including webcam. Not sure if 1710 does but if you sign up to the forum just download the latest beta from the Beta/RC Releases forum (not visible until you sign up) and I know that supports it
