I've decided to upgrade my old yhoo msg and it doesnt connect due to
some weird proxy pblms that I've tried to fix using yhoo msg help
tools. Please advise if you have any answers to this. I don't think it
is the firewall. I have the same pblm w. Skype. What is wrong with my
laptop? Thank you.
There is no answer at this time.

It is a bit offtopic... but I suggest you using Live Messenger (MSN) -
it is much better and you can chat over Yahoo protocol using Live

Do you have a router? 
You may want to open some ports, if so.
If it is a machine specific problem check your iptables and 
perhaps disable your proxy.

If you're using a router, head to which might help.
