Assuming the missing "s.connect(hostname, port)"
(or "s.connect((hostname, port))"), your code looks correct.

Hmm... What told you there were some extra bytes at the beginning?
Are you sure:
- AIM servers use TCP?
- Python client is the problem?
- Python socket C code is properly working?
(maybe try test_socket.py in somewhere in the library of Python
-- /usr/lib/python1.5/test/test_socket.py or whatever -- or try
one of the socker examples).
