Forget Yahoo Messenger, it only installs well on Windows, Macs, and mobiles, just install GYachE if you only want Yahoo, aMSN if you only want MSN, or you can install Pidgin which is a multi protocol messenger. :P

Newest info on installing yahoo messenger on linux is 2005, see link below, GYachE is the linux equivalent of Yahoo Messenger and it imports all your yahoo contacts. When you go to the Yahoo Messenger home page, you will note that there is no download for linux, only Windows, Mac, and Mobile
