After I was listed with google, I changed some things in my title and keywords. Will Yahoo pick up the changes, or will it list exactly as in google?

Are you in the Yahoo! directory? If you are then what you have as your description should stay the same forever. If you are talking about the web page matches then these are provided by Google. You may hear it called Yahoogle. It will be the same stuff as google.com, Yahoo! is just using their results.

>>will it list exactly as in google?

If you are talking about yahoogle results then Yes.

Directories will never pick up changes unless the change is your site going 404. Dmoz, Yahoo!, and other directories review your site and give you one listing. That listing will not change unless you work for it with an editor.

I know this is a stupid question, but what does 404 mean?

404 is the error "File not found"

I see that (404) a lot in my raw access logs, and of course in the error files. Does this mean that someone is having trouble getting into my site or what?

It means that there is probably a link out there pointing to a document that is not there. Usually from a misspelling.

Could also be a spider looking for your robots.text file, if you don't have one.

I think if someone bookmarks one of your pages and you don't have a favicon (favorites icon) you'll also see a 404 error in your log.
