Right-click on the gaim icon in the upper right corner. That's probably
your "system tray" area. The right-click will bring up several choices,
one of which is "accounts" select that, and you should be able to add
a new account for various chat protocols.
It's been awhile, but I still remember this being unintuitive to me also :)
