if i have two AIM screen names, can i sign in to both of them in ichat, like i can with adium? i guess i'm just paranoid about stability and would prefer to use mac apps rather than third party apps.

1) Open iChat
2) Open Preferences from the main menu
3) Go to the Accounts tab and press the "+" button at the bottom right corner
4) Select the Account type (AIM in your case)
5) Fill the account details

That's about it.

But this only allows you to have your accounts stored. You can still only be logged in as one identity at a time. Adium lets you log in as as many identities as you want at once.
