simply obtain .rpm package from messenger.yahoo.com and install it by double clicking on it.. just like installation of exe file on windows.
or by command prompt goto the directory where it is stored and type rpm -i <filename>

to install previous ..
Code: [Select]
rpm -e <rpmname>

to find the expact rpm name
Code: [Select]
rpm -q ymessenger
it will give exact version etc of any rpm installed on your machine having "ymessenger" in it.

to install new one you have simply exute rpm file or from command line
Code: [Select]
rpm -ivh <filename.rpm>

PS: I suugest you to go through other yahoo messnger thread in our forum as I think your problem has been already solved in those.
