Tricky...

For the gaim install, try the same command but replace the -i with -U. If that doesn't work repost the output...

As for removing RPMs from the system, you can use "rpm -e <package>". This will take some work though. Red Hat has a real spider web of depenancies that you are going to have to weed through.

Check out the post that Arenba submitted... I went over it briefly but I think the answers to the gaim issue will be located there...
