Are you talking about "MSN Messenger" service?

If so, there are many clients for *nix which support it.  I use 'Gaim' for AIM, but it also supports Yahoo IM, Jabber, ICQ, and yes, MSN Messenger.

http://gaim.sf.net/ if there are no packages included with your Linux OS.

as an addition to jimbb, another great tool that looks and
acts like MSN is AMSN, from http://amsn.sourceforge.net/
