    What do you mean light up? If you downloaded Aim from aim.com, i really wouldnt suggest that you use that, iChat is much better and the icon will bounce when you get a IM.

    or AdiumX is also really good.

    Aim for mac from aim.com is horrible and hasn't been developed for in many years yet they leave it up. It would be best to get a newly devloped aim client, either adium ichat or one of the many others discussed on the forums. You will find a list if you search for it as well as what people think of each one and who uses what.

    lol just use ichat.it works beter then aim...its free...but the downside is that you cant have like webcam chats.

    wen you open up ichat it should say something about a ichat acount.put your aol adress in there and do it

    thats how i do it

    =D
