MSN requires SSL support in gaim. Check out this page http://gaim.sf.net/faq-ssl.php
 for information about how to enable this with different distributions. You will find a section about Mandrake 9.2 on this page.

Download this file http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gaim/gaim-0.76-0mdk9.2.i586.rpm?download (click on one of the download links) and replace our gaim version with it:

rpm -U gaim-0.76-0mdk9.2.i586.rpm
