After checking your spelling, try grabbing Gaim from the homepage. Sometimes the protocols are changed to keep people like Gaim users away...

The packages with Suse 9.0 would be outdated and the protocols changed so gaim and kopete would not be able to log you into yahoo or msn. The best thing is to uninstall the old version, then install the autopackage from the gaim website.
