    Just use GAIM. It handles all the major networks. At least it handles chatting for al lthe major networks. Might mess up file transfers and stuff but chatting works fine.

    Set up a Jabber server on your box, and use Gaim (or other Jabber client) to chat via it. That way, you won't be needing the Internet for it.
