Exactly what are the commands you are using and what are your repos?

For flash,
Code:
#yum install flash-plugin
Also this might helphttp://www.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc6-tips.php

See this website for instructions on installing Flash on Fedora Core 6 64bit: The Unofficial Fedora Core 6 64bit Guide.

As for the Nvidia drivers, are you trying to install the ones from Nvidia, or the ones available in the Livna repos? Try enabling the Livna repositories, and install "kmod-nvidia" using YUM.

I hope this helps
