Initial Comment:
Add a button to the account setup UI that says "HELP ME"; and or prompt the 
user when they first install - "Do you want some help getting started?"

Clicking yes should take them to gaim.sf.net/support

New users suck and keep emailing "HOW DO I DO XXYZ" questions.

This is because they don't read the FAQ; and when they do read the FAQ...

"How do I use AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Jabber, ICQ, or any other protocol? 

   Use the Account Editor (Tools->Accounts, or the Accounts button on the start 
screen) to add the account of the appropriate messaging service. Use the 
checkbox in the account editor to sign online."


Sad end user.

See the attached HTML for a suggested landing page to get started.
