Default Multi-user Video Messaging clients

My brother just moved to Korea with his wife and daughter. I'd like to find a video instant messaging client where we can talk, along with my mom & dad who live here in the states but an hour away, and my sister and nephew, who live 2 hours away...

So, I'd like a client that shows everybody in their own window (like the Brady Bunch - but only 4 windows instead of 9) and allow simultaneous video/voice chat between all of us.

I've googled and googled and googled but can't find one...I can't be the only one that needs something like this.

Any ideas?

The new Macs with built-in iSight will let you do that using iChat, but you'd need to upgrade everyone to Macs

Yeah, a co-worker mentioned that. No interest in a Mac...

I didn't see any evidence of the "party-line" that I'd like to create - their site only shows it as a one-to-one calling client.

Ever notice that every IM site shows a couple of hot chicks with nothing better to do than talk to guys over the internet?
Thanks, I'll give it a look.

Ah...Thanks, Joker.
I think this might be just what I was looking for.
This is the kind of interface I was hoping to find:

I ordered my webcam...should be here in a few days so I'll get to try it out pretty soon.

I bought a couple Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX's. It works well with any of the IM's but recommends MSN.
