    After reading some of the articles on the forum I have finely been able to use GAIM and have access to msn messenger and yahoo! messenger. Thanks to everyone for the info.

    BLTicklemonster: As far as I know, Yahoo! uses SIP for its voice chat. All you need is a program that supports SIP.

    gyatch is supposed to support mic on linux for yahoo. ive tried but never got it working with voice chat, but i know others have. i will use skype, and gnomemeeting. both are compatible with windows users except. gnomemeeting is compatible with netmeeting, but i am not sure if the voice chat is. wengophone is a really good one to try for voip. if you want support for webcam with msn, try amsn. if you want webcam support for msn and yahoo, try kopete.

    gyachi voice chat only works on chat rooms unfortunately, its not yet sip base like the one on the current yahoo version for windows, to talk on voice enabled chat room, launch the voice chat, and click and toggle the "Talk" button" to talk and untoggle the button for others to talk to the public mic.
