Hey, I recommend Adium for all your IM needs, but since you're asking about iChat you obviously have your reasons :)

Check out this guide:

I gave it a go ages back, but from memory it messed with my MSN friend list on other OS/applications (Trillian, Windows Live Messenger, Adium) and never bothered to investigate as to the cause (ie my own fault/mistake, or actual issue with the method)

Keen to hear how you get on, so please post an update....also whether you have problems across multiple apps from setting this up in iChat.
