For yahoo sitemap you can use "Site Map Builder .Net" program.
But i am also looking for info to create sitemap for Msn. And where to submit sitemap for msn.

Ummm, thanks for the plug to some windows software, but I am on a Macintosh, and I don't mind doing this by hand.
I need someone here to post some sample code from one of their successful sitemaps, so i can finish the doc here on my end.
Anyone willing to share?

It should be fairly simple to use the sitemap.xml file and do a search and replace for multiple things.
It is trivial if you have a spreadsheet.
Remove all lines which contain <lastmod>
Remove all lines which contain <changefreq>
Remove all lines which contain <priority>
Search for <url> replace with <li>
Search for </url> replace with </li>
Search for <loc> replace with <a href=">
Search for </loc> replace with ">sometext</a>
In a spreadsheet, you can write a formula which copies the url again into the location which says "sometext" and be done. Otherwise, you need to find a way to put a descriptive, useful title into that location.
Once you have done that, you can simply add <ul> at the top and </ul> at the bottom of the list of urls and remove everthing else, format the page the way you want it to look, split it into ten or twelve pages with a navigation system (try to keep less than 100 links per page) and you should be done.

PS: since OS X is UNIX-like, you might be able to use sed and grep and ¦ and > and things like that to do this in one line of code.

Thank you KathheeSue!
Was just gonna ask you if you knew the grep command, been a while since I've done Grep...
obviously the time changes on each one
<lastmod>Grep Comman Here * someting...etc </lastmod>
Than kyou for taking the time to care and share...!

If you grep for the line containing <lastmod> and exclude those lines from the stream, you can then pipe that to the next command.
Be sure to make a backup copy before you do any of this.
grep -v <pattern> <filename> >> newfile.txt
grep -v lastmod originalfile.txt > newfile.txt
Once everything is gone that you don't want, maybe sed would work better for the substitution part?

It's Greek to me, thanks though....

put the sitemap in a directory by itself.
run this command:
grep -v lastmod sitemap.xml > newfile.txt
run this command
grep -v changefreq newfile.txt > newfile2.txt
run this command:
grep -v priority newfile2.txt > newfile3.txt
Now you should have a file called newfile3.txt which does not contain the lines which you don't want.
Pull it into a text editor and do search and replace for the other items mentioned above.
