To install the buddy icon-- you can either click on the image you want and AIM will automatically install it (after asking you if you are sure you want to change your buddy icon) or you can right click the picture of the buddy icon you want, and click 'save picture as'. (remember what folder you saved it in because you will need to remember it later). Next, open up AIM on your computer, go to my aim> edit options> edit preferences, then click the 'buddy icon' tab on the screen that comes up. Then, click on the 'Browse PC..' button and go into the folder where you saved the buddy icon. click on the buddy icon> ok> ok. and then you are done. Have fun!!
