I'm not too familiar with RH9, but you could try going to "System -> Package Management" or something along those lines. I don't know what redhat uses as a package management system

gaim-0.82.1-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm

This is a mandrake RPM
you can try installing it by issuing the

# rpm -i gaim-0.82.1-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm

command, but if it doesn't work you'll want to try a redhat rpm
note: you want to install as root

Easy killer.
Go to your package management system, and type ssl
install those
problem solved
reinstalling GAIM wont do anything for you
