I am very very new to redhat and I am so lost and confused. I have been trying to download any of the IM's for redhat and I have been able to get a few to download but then I can't seem to figure out how to install them or if I even downloaded them correctly. Please can someone help me?

rpm -i amsn-0.90-1.i386.rpm
you can now run amsn from your terminal by typing amsn
