You don't need any proxy client software - at least not if it's a normal proxy. If you can browse the web from the Linux box, you don't need anything besides the proxy configuration.

As I said, it's possible that your IT department does block the Yahoo site. Can you find out what your admins did with the Win98 machines?

No, the RPM package is all you need. Are you sure that the proxy is running on port 80? Is it possible that your IT department has blocked the Yahoo messenger protocol?

Have u tried going direct - removing the proxy settings from Messenger setup?  Also, GAIM and Kopete work well with Yahoo.  You may have better luck with them.
