GAIM - Direct Connect

Anyone know how to get GAIM to do file transfers and direct connect under AOL Instant Messenger? I'm using Fedora Core 3.

Right click a user on your buddy list, and click "Send File". Or when the conversation window is already open, click the button "Send File". Works approx 9/10 times for me.

DC has made a (1 - one) successful connection before for me. However, it crashed when I attempted to drag anything into the text area.
