look at winpopup, note though it can be used outside the local network
[an annoyance and via hacks]

OR use Windows Chat [NetMeeting]

Is there a simple software program that will allow users on a network to

others are ntfs.

The communication of users in differing file system structures is not
the issue or an issue IF what you are referring to is actual
communication, such as messaging.
IF you are referring to sharing files between an OS like VISTA or other
NT using NTFS and Win98FE [Fat32], then the filing system MAY cause
issues [lack of native support for NTFS in Win9X].

What type of communication are you referring to and what exactly is the
style of communication desired [voice, email, instant messaging, file
sharing, etc.]?
