What do you mean?..."I have down loaded yahoo instant messenger using Pidgin"

Did you actually use the Yahoo! Protocol or did you use your Yahoo address to access the MSN Protocol? Are your buddies on Yahoo! or MSN?

You do not download Yahoo! Instant Messenger, you just add the Yahoo! account to Pidgin. Pidgin>Accounts>Manage Accounts>Add> Change the Protocol to Yahoo!> Add Username>Add Password>Save....Works!
