Question Unable to update GAIM on Redhat 9.1

I am running Redhat 9.1, one of the packages I installed was Gaim.
The package Redhat includes has Gaim 57.8 I am forced to use MSN Messenger and I need to update to the 71.0 or better to get the correct protocol. I downloaded the newest RH package and ran it. But it doesn't update GAIM. I am not seeing any errors or any indication that the package failed to install. Anyone have any ideas on this one?

Thanks from a grateful newbie.

Maybe the problem is your version of Redhat, as 9.1 doesn't exist. Their last version was 9, not 9.0 or 9.1 but just 9.
