    There is a step by step guide in the documentation (RTFM :)), so easy infact that 4 years ago when I first came to uni I was able to set it up 10 mins after loggining into the departments redhat machines for the first time (the first 10 was trying to figure out how to change the password they gave me).

    when in that directory:

    ./amsn

    There is much documentation about getting it to automatically start, minimise to 'system tray' etc... At first you will have to read through a bit of documentation but this way you will learn.
