Trying to install Yahoo Messenger

Does anybody know how to install Yahoo Messenger. I am running PCLINUXOS. Which package of Yahoo Messenger should I use. I know I can use Pidgin but yahoo has voice and I want to use it.

Last I heard, the official Yahoo Messenger client for Linux couldn't do anything that Pidgin can't, it is pretty crippled and out of date.

The only client I know of for Linux with voice support is GYachI.
