I messed with Suse for a short period of time and I remember that yast was very good at downloading and installing programs for you. Did you try yast yet?

The newest updates of official suse rpms are here (for example, lots of mirrors):
No gaim in there however.
The officiall GAIM site has lots of rpms:
There is a suse rpm here:

Try searching for "gaim rpm suse" or search RPMseek.

Have fun chatting,
