Why is that not helpful?  I saw several text mode clients in my search.  
Try gaim and several others.  You have to be willing to at least try to 
look into things on your own.  When I was searching for an AIM client, 
did you see me post here?  No, I looked myself and found two, naim and 
pork.  I didn't like either one, but at least I bothered to look.  As I 
said, I saw several text mode MSN clients in my very brief search and I 
didn't even look at everything.  With that said, I don't use MSN but 
gaim has been recommended.
