Gaim works for AIM, Yahoo, ICQ, & MSN. It came with my Mandrake 9, but you didn't mention what you have - check to see if it's available, if not, DL it.

I like gaim, although I don't use ICQ. I know aim file transfer works. You might want to upgrade to the latest version. http://gaim.sourceforge.net

Although I'm rather ****ed off at the gaim developers for a number of reasons, I think it's the best IM prog available even though it lacks a lot of the functionality. I'm lost without a built in spellcheck.
