Which distro for yahoo messenger with webcam

Been playing around with Ubuntu netbook and 10.4lts on 2 computers for a few months and really enjoying it. The only feature I need that I currently cannot use is yahoo messenger with webcam support on either computer. Tried as best a newbie can with out success following various forum advise.I ask if anyone has this feature working on any other distro, or a tried and working fix for Ubuntu .Thanks for taking the time to read this

Try Debian it's quite easy to install and uses less resources.

Thanks guys .Very impressed by the responses ! Loaded 10.10 but updates failed and seems to have mucked with the system so will try again soon. Will upgrading to 11.04 be helpful in my situation ? Reading some user comments I wonder if there are not a few too many bugs and whether yahoo mesenger will work in the same way as advised for 10.10.
