Ypops works well; it is somewhat slow compared to regular POP3, but it's not
You could move all the messages you want to download into a new folder, then
use Ypops to download everything in that folder.

If you have Mail Plus:
Move all the messages you want to keep in Yahoo to a folder other than inbox
Move the messages you want to download to the Inbox
Use a pop3 client (Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird, Eudora, etc) to
download the messages
Move the other messages back to the inbox
If you're still using the classic interface, you could also try the archive
function; I believe it lets you archive only a particular folder. Not sure
if that many messages would be too much for it, but you could do it in
smaller batches if necessary.
If you don't have Mail Plus, check out Ypops:
I'm trying it now, so I can't say how well it works...
