The answer lies in your post: you need the Qt libraries. I did a quick search and found these two packages for Fedora 9: qt-4.3.4-14.fc9 and qt-x11-4.3.4-14.fc9
The first provides all the libraries except libQtGui, which the second provides. I hope these two suffice.

Have you checked to see if it's in one of your yum repositories? If it is, yum makes things much easier for you since it automatically will download and install any necessary dependencies.

Bring up a terminal, login as root, and run the following:

# yum install skype

one more thing, you may have problems installing skype if your OS is 64bit... tutorials on the web are easy to find though.
i remember using a program called getlibs (im using kubuntu and apt)
it was really simple and downloaded the missing 32bit repos, running skype after that was no problem
