    Something more simple:
    -go to http://rpm.pbone.net/.
    -use that libstdc++.so.5 as a search word.
    -choose your distro from the list.
    -choose a mirror and download and install the rpm.
    -try installing again (it should work now).

    I got my firefox installed that way.

    except use "/your/firefox/direcory/firefox" instead of "gaim"

    how exactly?
    What happens if you try to boot it from terminal program. Any errors? Or do you mean that it doesn't react in any way when you try to boot it?
