I agree, such language is not nessesary on a free linux user forum.

If you would like to install an instant messanger that supports such protocols as Yahoo, MSN, ICQ, etc. The best, in my opinion for Linux and windows is Gaim. When you download the package, you should read the included README and INSTALL files, they are invaluable and will guide you through step by step in installing the program to your system.

Almost all software for linux includes these files, it's easy for someone to walk you through holding your hand, but you''re best to read first.

Please try and control your language... Since this is your first post on this board, I didn't delete it. I will delete any others that contain that type of language.
The method of installing programs depends on the distribution of GNU/Linux you are using. I can (and will be glad to) give you more specific instructions on the installation and use of Gaim if you provide me with the name of your distro.

Try aMSN for MSN Messenger. Its almost a complete remake of the original. Make sure TCL/Tk is installed on your system, then just extact it to /home/yourlogin.
Type ./amsn or wish amsn in the shell/terminal and it should bring it up. You can also make an icon for it on the desktop or a panel, just name it aMSN and make the Command:
You should be set to go after that.
Get aMSN Here
As for Yahoo Messenger, I don't use it or I would help you with that problem as well.

Good luck.
