Times are changing.. ;)
I don't know how difficult it is to get listed on Yahoo, but I suspect it has just to do with simple thing like:
your page looks good, the content "seems" ok, you have well choosen your category in Yahoo, the person in charge is in a good day, then you get listed.
It is much more easy on altavista for example, since at the very least you need to provide your URL and it is automatically 'looked at' by a software spider and indexed if there is sufficient information (meta tags important for altavista and others.. not so much for yahoo and other directories with human viewing, but useful anyway).
Have a nice day and have a look at my site, maybe you can help me.
