'95 must be told - quoting from their help site they haven't even fully tested it on 98/ME....

"Because it hasn't been fully tested, we have not yet certified Skype for use with these operating systems. Skype may work with Windows 98 (Win98)or ME but we cannot yet guarantee compatibility. Some WinME/9x video (and possibly others) drivers tend to use 100% of processor for their needs for relatively long periods of time. This can cause the audio quality to degrade significantly. In addition, WinME/9x does not offer full unicode support, which means that some things may not display properly. Skype does not work on WinNT at the moment. We may support these platforms in the future and will make any future announcements on our website."

There's a similar program called Gizmo but I believe that's Win2k/XP only.

ICQ 5 is for Win98+, you can get older versions here click here but it will be alot of trial and error.
