Install gaim from here:
Then just configure it to your yahoo account.

I've never tried Yahoo, but from my MSN experience when setting up the preferences, there are two check boxes without labels. The left-most is to remember password (I believe) and the right-most is to automatically login.
Give MSN a shot and make sure your install of GAIM isn't screwed. I would imagine YIM works in the same manner.
A completely blank screen (assuming it went through the login process) probably means no contacts are online.
Try logging into YIM on your PC and then attempting to do so on the 770. See if your PC instance gets kicked off.

The same thing is happening to me. I run GAIM and I know I'm signed on b/c it will alert my mobile that I've signed on in a second location. But all I get is a blank screen, then it freezes my 770 up and I have to remove the battery. Anyone know what gives?
