Are you sure that the downloaded .rpm file is for your linux distribution? Every Linux distribution has a separate Yahoo Messenger .rpm file. There are separate versions for Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 8.0 and now Red Hat 9 etc. An rpm file meant for Red Hat 7.0 may work on version 7.1....but there's no surety about that.
Just make sure you're using the right ymessenger .rpm file.
