    I need msn and yahoo messenger installed so I contact people.

    I just tried downlaoding msn through knoppix.

    The downlaod proceeded, but I got some dialog box with something about 'WINE.'

    This dialog box said after the downlaod that it was a failure apparently, and that WINE was still in development so problems can occur.

    How can I get msn on knoppix, is it possible :?:

    I haven't tried yahoo messenger just yet, as my main messenger is msn.

    Thanks :!:

    use GAIM
    should be installed by default
    allows connections to Yahoo, AOL, ICQ, MSN, Jabber all from one client
    I use it on my windows box too in the place of having 5 clients lol

    if its not installed by default on knoppix, get it off the net
    search for gaim

    Nice one, never heard of that.
    Sounds like a real handy app.

    Will sort that out tomorrow.
