    Something like this?
    [tex]\begin{align*}
    y_1 a_{11} & + & y_2 a_{21} & + & \cdots & + & e_1 & = & 0 \\
    y_1 a_{12} & + & y_2 a_{22} & + & \cdots & + & e_2 & = & 0 \\
    \vdots & & \vdots & & & & \vdots& & \\
    y_1 a_{1M} & + & y_2 a_{2M} & + & \cdots & + & e_M & = & 0 \\
    \end{align*}[/tex]
