    According to that:
    WineHQ - Yahoo Instant Messenger

    You can run the yahoo messenger programm with wine, but chat wont work.

    So I also recommend pidgin.
    Pidgin is a native linux programm, that does know the yahoo protocoll among many others.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
