how do i connect mozilla thunderbird to yahoo mail


i know i have been asking alot of questions lately so this will be my last for a while

i have a free yahoo account and i am using pclinuxos 2009.2 and i want mozilla thunderbird to connect to my yahoo inbox, my gmail connects fine mainly because all the network information is tapped in

i know that you have to download ypops but how do i install it and how do i make sure it is running

i have no idea on how to set that up

i am using pclinuxos 2009.2 and Mozilla Thunderbird was pre-installed from when i installed the operating system, the only thing that i need to install was open office, scribus and Sunbird

the guides on the net say something about using the ypops file and to ensure that its working
how do i know if its working and how do i set it up, it doesn't have a .exe file that will launch an installer

to top it all off, the ypops file isn't in the repositories
