If you've already downloaded the rpm then do the following from any directory as root or su:

rpm -i gaim-file-name.rpm

then u need to install gtkspell ,
search for them in

and if u want to make downloading and installing software easier in the future u should check out apt-get , as u will only type : apt-get install gaim
thats it

or theres a gui for it called synaptic
