    Have you run Mandrake Update recently? There have been several updates this year to keep up with changes MSN and Yahoo make to their chat protocols.

    If you are running Mandrake 10.0 or before then you'll need to upgrade to a supported version like 10.1 or 10.2 for updates.

    I hate to tell you but you might be out of luck then

    Really you need to upgrade to the latest release about once per year - if you can't download it then look for a place that sells the CDs (ie. NOT a boxed set or powerpack or whatever). Eg. if you live in Australia www.elx.com.au has Mandrake 10.1 CDs for about $10. I'm sure there are many other companys that sell Linux CDs for similar very low prices.
