Cool Yahoo and Redhat

This is a silly ?. I'm very new to Linux, and Using RedHat Shrike. I've downloaded the ymessenger prog. but unsure how to really install and run it. If someone could give me a brief tutorial, I'd greatly appreciate it.

i'm guessing you missed the instructions so here they are.

RedHat Linux:

1. Save the appropriate file listed below to your machine.
* RedHat 6.x (837b5919bffabae74386bcbc2a602daf)
* RedHat 7.x(8d6ebad8eee0260ef9f53a535ced5f68)
* RedHat 8.0(c1c43d6dde97d2bad13140b25b044d98)
* RedHat 9(325e37fe50a7beb32d740da5d7467751)
2. Log in as root and type
rpm -i <filename>
with the appropriate filename depending on your version to install the application.
3. Run /usr/bin/ymessenger from X Window to launch the application.

this was taken directly from

good luck.
