    Maybe you could try virtualization like VirtualBox, it's free, pretty
    easy to install and to add new gest os like Windos Xp. Just search for
    it via Yast, if it's not there you have installations available on
    'Linux_Downloads - VirtualBox'
    (http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads).

    Messenger works well (or as well as with any client side for the
    protocol) in Pidgin, which probably came with your box and supports a
    dozen or so protocols all at once. I think you'll be happier with
    Pidgin than the native client (my whole computer-illiterate family
    is...) and it will work on Linux right now. The e-mail clients in Linux
    (Evolution, Thunderbird, etc.) should also meet your needs I imagine.
    Another benefit is a lot less overhead running native tools that do the
    same thing.

    Good luck.

    i access/use my old hotmail account with Firefox running in openSUSE,
    works good..

    and, as mentioned by others, Pigdin beats the M$-Messenger six ways
    from Sunday.

    you wrote "(ie..mail,messenger.etc...)" what would be that "etc" that
    FF and Pigdin would miss?? (having not used M$ in years i wouldn't know)
