quest for Qt 3.2 (aka, problems installing skype)

okay, i've been using linux for awhile now and can usually find what i need when i need it. also, i usually know what it acctually does. this time, however, i am stumped. i'm trying to install Skype on a mandrake 10 box and when i try to install the rpm i get the following message:

Some package requested cannot be installed:
skype- (due to unsatisfied qt[>= 3.2])
i have no idea where i can find qt. can anyone help me on this one?
