Buddy Icon

How do I put my buddy icon that shows a Time magazine cover with Bush on the front and the caption, "We're Fucked" on my GAIM window? I know that buddy icons work in Windows, but in GAIM I dunno. I saved the file to my Home folder.

go to tools-> accounts, hit edit for your account, and you should see it say "buddy icon", press open and select your buddy icon, press ok, and save, then sign off and sign on for good measure
