    Trouble installing rpm's

    I am new to Linux. I just got Fedora and I tried to download and install aMSN a messenger client. The file is called "amsn_0.94-1.1.fc3.rf_i386.rpm" and when I tried to install it, it gave me an error saying that two files were required for the installation:
    libtcl8.4.so
    libtk8.4.so
    As I said, I'm new to this and I'm not sure what this means but it seems that every rpm file I try to open gives me an error saying that it requires additional files. I would truly appreciate some advice.

    No go

    Ok I downloaded both of those files and tried to execute them but thy gave me more errors about needing other files. Did I do it right? I just double clicked them. Sorry, I'm not sure if that was right or what but they didn't work.

    Try right-clicking the RPM file and install it through there.

    Your installation CD should come with a messenger, just install from your CD.
