Hi Terroth -

isn't gaim on the mdk distro CD's? there must be some easy GUI app in your menus to add/remove programs, or manage packages, etc. - that will allow you to easily get it off the CD.

as for firefox - have you downloaded it from here:

take a look here for an indepth explanation of how to untar it:

then make sure to spend some time reading the free docs here:
