    better thing to do would probably be to uninstall gaim and install the latest version fresh

    you can get it and more info here: http://gaim.sourceforge.net/
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Just adding something to this thread...

    If all you need is MSN on Linux, I personally recommend getting the latest version of AMSN. It looks and behaves very similar to the Windows client, only it has the cutest fat peguin waddling when logging in.

    The URL for it is:

    http://amsn.sourceforge.net

    Warning: You might need to download the latest version of Tcl/Tk in order to get it to run.

    Get GAIM from my signature or from any of the posted links above. Did you really need to be told that?

    i think at this point it may be more important for you update your distro. Red Hat 8.0 is extremely outdated and wasn't even a very good distro when it was new. If you actually like Red Hat I would suggest using the latest Fedora, which is an up-to-date non-commercial version of Red Hat

    I think you'll find that your Linux experience is much more enjoyable once you upgrade.

    and as Yawgm0th so brazenly pointed out, there are several MSN Mess compatible clients listed above with excellent installation directions on their accompanying sites
