You might want to check out Trillian - the ultimate chat program which currently supports AOL IM, ICQ, MSN Messenger, IRC, and Yahoo! Messenger. It'll work until one of the IM providers updates their software to thwart IM clones. Then you'll have to go get a patch to get around the thwarting.
This might be a cool program to test out if you are like some of the guys I work with who load two or three different IM programs on their PC.
