Multiple messenger services? Yes. Look at trillian as a solution.

external hard drive: Yes/No. You can copy the data over, but you can't just copy it back to a new pc/laptop/drive and expect it to work. You'll need to reinstall and replace the active data files. Look at Symantec Backup Exec, Norton Ghost, or Norton 360. All three can backup your files properly (I listed the order in which I use/trust the most).

I put em all on Trillian, but I rarely turn it on, I'm a bit antisocial and I like max performance outa my antique.

if you have 2 gigs of ram there is no way that running those three programs running will slow it down. And yes you can save all your files over to the external hard drive, but if you want your computer to remain the exact same as it is now, there are several back up systems that can save all your programs, files and everything but they take up alot of room, and to keep it up to date you have to do it regularly which is just a pain. Its much easier to just keep a backup of your documents and important files then just reinstall the programs.
