You can use PIDGIN Messanger. Go to www.pidgin.im. Download yum repository and install it on your RHEL 5 and use yum to download it.

RHEL By default not providing any of the softwares that used for desktop from version 5. If you are using RHEL for Desktop purpose, better to use CentOS 5.3 version which is latest version. CentOS is basically free version of the RHEL.  When Redhat release their major version CentOS Community gets the source code of it and compile it according again after removing redhat branding and adding  few more softwares they release it.

By the way, I am sending you this update from CentOS 5.3
