Problem with missing librarys


I'm trying to instal aim 1.5-286-1. When I run the rpm it says:
libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 is needed by aim-1.5.286-1

I use Fedora and don't know what to download and how to install what i download. If processor type is relavent, I have a pentium 4. Also I chose workstation installation, so I thought I'd have all the programming utilities and such, am I wrong or something? Can someone help me out here? ... Once I get aim working and a program that will play my mp3s then I'll be saying goodbye to windows.

if all you wanna use is aim, i suggest you try gaim, which is a messenger client that supports aim, msn and a few others...you might already have it on your system, check your menu under "internet, communication" or whatever fedora calls it...but if not you can download it from http://www.gaim.sourceforge.net
