Open up a console and run whereis :-

whereis gaim

It should report back the location of the binary,
libraries and the man pages. something like 

gaim: /usr/bin/gaim /usr/lib/gaim /usr/include/gaim

Check from Mandrake control center(mcc) if the package
is installed or if it is installable. 
Did you update the repositories / install any software
updates ?
