How does Yahoo compare with Google in terms of finding and adding new sites to it's listings?
I know google can be within 24hrs, and has a ton of spiders.
How does Yahoo compare? Similar?

If I remember correctly, it took Yahoo a lot longer than Google to reindex our website after the redesign changed all the URLs. MSN was much worse though. Wonder if they ever did reindex everything...haven't checked in ages!

I concur. Yahoo seems to be a bit slower on the uptake across the board when it comes to indexing a new site or re-indexing changes. Last time I had the need to check (a few months ago) Google was days, Yahoo was a few weeks and MSN was more along the lines or 6-8 weeks to get it accomplished completely. Of course all of these numbers can vary a bit, depending upon how many really good links a site has pointing at it.

I checked and MSN does have us properly indexes now. Good thing as it's been over a year!

My observations is that for every 5 pages G crawls, Y crawls 1 or 2 and M is even slower to where it's 1 for every 20+ pages G crawls. However, I've noticed over the last couple of years that Y is quicker to index new pages on an existing site than G. G is simply head-and-shoulders above the rest when it comes to updating a rewritten site (with new page names using a 301) or indexing a new site.
