You are using an old version of Gaim. MS changes it's protocols to avoid third part applications (as Gaim) to work.

If you are using Knoppix installed on your HD, then no problems, download and install a new one. Otherwise, if you are running from the CD (booting from Knoppix), so there's really nothing you can do about that
