hi,
always post the errors which you get, it makes people understand better.

for ymessenger you can search for "rpm" or
use "urpmi" for downloading that.

urpmi is a tool for mandrake for downloading other things
many times when you untar something or try using "rpm" they generated dependency errors.
the tools like "urpmi" helps you at this point.

so first download 'urpmi' then start downloading other things.

regards

Use gaim. It's more polished and user friendly. It can also connect to AOL, MSN, etc.

gaim should come with mandrake.

Thanks,
Sarav
