thanks. I had taken the first option, IRQ (not IRC) which I
assumed was the one I wanted (gee I was only out by one
char). In figuring out what to programs to download, I'd
read about court cases with AOL which the gaim people didn't
want to talk about. When I saw what I thought was IRC not
being allowed to connect to anyone, I'd assumed that gaim
wasn't allowed to have IRC except with a fixed server.
Now that this is fixed, I can now talk to myself using IRC.
The server (ircd-hybrid) I'm using doesn't have jabber (I
just assumed it did since it was one of the common
protocols) so I couldn't talk to myself with jabber last

thanks for the clue
