Use Google Talk.

You probably all have a Google Mail account, that means you all now have a Jabber account on Google's servers. There is no reason anymore to use AIM, ICQ, MSN, or Skype. And unless you are using the video chat service, stop using Yahoo.

Go to talk.google.com to get set up. If you already have Gaim or Trillian or iChat, you don't even need to install new software, since Google, being Not Evil, is using the open protocol Jabber.
