Yahoo messenger for win Me

Specs: Windows Me, 1ghz / 512mb
This lady I know has a old HP computer with windows Me she was wanting to give to a friend. It runs quick as I threw in 512mb of ram and a network card for her and got it on broadband. I upgraded to IE 6 and also put on a compatible version of firefox. Some reason She want's yahoo messenger on it so she can chat on it with her and other friends but I can't seem to get any kind of yahoo messenger or a compatible messenger to work. I've tried lots of different versions from oldversion.com along with Gaim, trillian, y-lite, etc. they all install but they won't connect to the chat server.

I'm not into putting copied versions of windows on to other computers and I doubt there wanting to put out a bunch of $ on buying xp for it considering the age of the machine. She has a hard enough time using windows so linux is out of the question too.

Anyone out there use yahoo messenger on win Me still and if so what's your trick?

Yahoo Messenger 8 supports Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP operating systems. Newer versions will not work.
