Okay, okay, gaim is very easy to install. Here's the skinny:

To install gaim, I first had to setup a new repository in the Application Manager. This is easily accomplished by opening the Application Manager under the Tools menu, selecting Tools > Application Catalog, and entering a new repository as below:

Web Address: http://maemo-hackers.org/apt/
Distribution: mistral
Components: main

Be sure enabled is checked and let Application Manager refresh itself. Then simply click on Install New Applications and select maemo-gaim to install. You also need to install the protocols for different services, such as AOL (Oscar) or Yahoo.

So, easy IM'ing with the 770. And thanks to the hacker's repository, easy to install!
