How to hide the gaim window in the taskbar

When I use gaim, there is always a window in the taskbar. I think it just occupy some taskbar space. Can I actually hide that window when I press the minimun button?

Hopefully I state my question clearly.

Thank you.

Yah.. just launch it from a console

Open a console and type in gaim (or... if you installed it somewhere weird just search for the file 'gaim' and type that into the console, ie if i installed gaim in /home/dretay/bin/gaim to launch it i would open a console and type in /home/dretay/bin/gaim/gaim
