OK, here's how to do it:

 

Download a real Jabber client (like Psi). Then register for a Swissjabber account (REMEMBER YOUR LOGIN INFORMATION). Enable this account through Psi and then enable MSN access (Yahoo also if you're so inclined). Now go to address book.

 

In the OS X address book, you can tediously enter all the information on your friends. Here's the key to it if you're using SwissJabber:

 

MSN: username%hotmail.com@msn.jabbernet.dk OR username%msn.com@msn.jabbernet.dk etc etc (substitute the % sign for the @ in their normal MSN id and then add the @msn.jabbernet.dk to it)

 

Yahoo: username@yahoo.swissjabber.ch

 

Now start up iChat and enter your Swissjabber login information from Psi. Log into your Jabber account and you're done! Just make sure to never use an MSN client at the same time you're using Jabber with the same ID--it'll make things go wonky.

 

FIXED SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT WITH THE YAHOO THING. PLEASE RE-READ IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE THIS
