Pre-Installed Instant Messenger (LindowsOS)

I noticed this Instant Messenger already in one of the menus of this LindowsOS thing I have, everytime I click on connect it'll say that I can't connect (After putting my userID and password), I'm not sure if it's the settings that are wrong for it or anything. And by the way, I want to connect to the Yahoo Messenger service using it and want to know what exactly I should do to get it to cennect to them. Your help would be appreciated.

Which IM client is it? There are several. If it handles multiple protocols like gaim or kopete you will first have to add the account before you can log in.

you can also try gyach enhanced. it's got almost all of the features of yahoo including super webcam. it's just hard to compile though because it has got many required packages.
