Where are you getting the flash package, direct from Adobe? Paste the command you are using and its output. Also, tell us what distro you are using.

If we don't know what you're doing, we can't help

Tell us what you've done, step by step. What did you download, what did you do to try to install the thing you downloaded.

Strange, I can't recreate this problem. I've tried this on a Fedora 8 system and it works for me.

If you know where the rpm is, pop open a terminal window (Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal) and cd to the proper directory. Type "rpm -ivh adobe*rpm" (make sure you use the correct rpm name). If that doesn't work do a "sudo rpm -ivh adobe*rpm".
