Talking need a chat software recomendation please!!!

Howdy all, just a quick question:
I got a lan between 4 comps windows home/pro/Me/95. What i'm hoping is that someone can recommend a Chat program that will work over both the lan (no internet connection on comp with 95 on it) and other IM services e.g aol, yahoo, msn from the comps with the net connection.

I goggled for it but could only find seperate programs for multiple IM services or LAN, but not both.

Thanks dan, i had a look but the programs there seemed to be either lan or trillian base (ie multiple im services) but not both. Thanks for the link though, i might see what else is that site!

if you have Windows NT, 2000 or XP, you can use the already installed Windows messenger by going into the command prompt and typing 'net send (their compuer/user name) (your message)
