Problems installing Amsn

Im running mandrake 9.1 and trying to install amsn buit i got these errors.

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm --install amsn-0.90-1.mdk9x.rpm

error: failed dependencies:
tk is needed by AMSN-0.90-1
perl(File::Basename) is needed by AMSN-0.90-1
perl(File::Copy) is needed by AMSN-0.90-1

What are these ¨dependencies¨? And how do I install them or whatever I have to do?
sorry im a noob

they are //most likly// the needed libraries by the program u r trying to install ..

u can use the --nodeps option at the last of the rpm installation command if u r sure u have these deps installed otherwhise the program won't work ..

and why using Amsn while u have gaim ?!
i almost use gaim for all my chats even at my lan !!
