Go to macromedia.com and download the driver.
They have pretty useful instructions but if you are icompetent to follow them then I summarize the jist of them. I dont have a linux box infront of me right now so I cant remember how to use the terminal to extract but to manually install them all you need to do is extract the driver and copy something .sll and .x...(something I cant remember) to your browsers plugin folder. For firefox I (again think just guessing here) believe it is /usr/etc/firfox/plugins.

The flash installer automatically sets up symbolic links....no need to worry about plugins directories etc...

Looks like 64 bit is not yet supported....I recommend Fedora Core 3...32 bit
