The file msgr9us.exe is a Windows executable and cannot be run in Linux, except for the Wine or similar environment. A lot of time ago, yahoo messenger supported linux, providing RPM and DEB packages, but it looks like this kind of support has been discontinued. An alternative is Pidgin (former Gaim) which claims to support a lot of different networks, yahoo included. You can give it a try.

You might want to try this Yahoo! Messenger for the Web, an online version of YM.

Code:
No package pidgin.repo available.
Indeed, you have to install pidgin, not pidgin.repo. The web site tells to copy the downloaded pidgin.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ then issue:
Code:
yum install pidgin

This means that yum needs some extra packages to satisfy dependencies for pidgin, but it can find these packages in any of the available repositories. You can try to find the packages at your RHN account or add the proper repositories to your already existing sources.

Simplest answer is to install the dependencies. If you do not have the dependencies you can install it with --nodeps option as well BUT it is not recommended.
