Default Login Android Market--Google non-gmail account?

I just got a Samsung Vibrant today--thanks to the free phone promotion at T-Mobile.

I'm a total Android newbie. I have a Google account using my Yahoo email address. Do I HAVE to have a gmail account to log in to the Android Market? When I try to login on the phone with my regular Google account, it says I am not a gmail user.

I have already updated my phone to Android (Froyo?) v2.2 and done a hard reset. I read elsewhere on this forum that logging in should be done right after a restart.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Bruce

PS I now have a Windows PC, an Android phone, and an iPad! I'm either in 3 different heavens or 3 different hells, depending on your point of view!
