    you can use gaim, kopete or AIM has a linux client, but it sucks. To register, i think you can figure it out, your a linux engineer, google AIM and its findable. AIM and linux will give you everything else.

    AIM is google aol instant messanger and you will be fine. or go to AOL's download page and they have the info for pickign a SN. Or if you install the client, it will regester a name for you.

    Personally I prefer using Gaim over Kopete, however Kopete is also good.

    Yes, an AIM account is free.

    I must admit, I just checked the AIM site, and it is now a total mess. Not as clear or helpful as it was before. To get a screen name, just click this link and follow the information.

    If above doesn't work, use this

    Hope this helps.

    It's usually better to start a new thread than revive a 2-year-old one, for the record.

    There are a number of AIM clients out there that have been mentioned. I personally prefer Gaim (http://gaim.sourceforge.net), but there's also Kopete (which comes with KDE) and the official AIM client, the Linux version of which blows chunks, which is available at the AIM website.
