I can tell you from previously using Mandriva myself for a good while, Pidgin can be found in the software management. It's just a matter of downloading the correct packages and repositories that have what you're looking for. If you configure your media sources, select one or two repositories from France (you'll see what I mean by that when you go to do it). Then apply your changes and run a search for Pidgin in the software management program. If nothing comes up, you have two other options:
1) navigate the left column to Network/Instant Message/ and then browse the options on the right.
2) type in kde-pidgin
Some programs are listed as KDE, meaning: they are listed as a KDE program, so you have to include that when browsing the program names. Hope this helps.

I have recently installed Mandriva 2008 on to a desk top system and can confirm that gaim seems to part of the main core of this distribution and can be located in /usr/share/apps.
Use the search - find file facility under menu>Find Files search option.
Q Do you use KDE or gnome? ( I think this may make a different)
I hope this is of help
