you go to their website, and download it....

actually gaim will definitely be on your mandrake cd's already, so i assume you can jst install it instantly through thecontrol centre thingy they have.

Just type in...

Code:
gaim
from the terminal or add it to your menu so you don't have to all the time.

EDIT: Too slow
