Your question nicely illustrates the extreme need to read while using Open Source software. It just won't hold your hand like a Mac or Windows machine! But, the rewards and the learning experience are well worthwhile.

I don't use Fedora or Red Hat, but I do use command line tools in every OS I use. Since it's better to learn why something works than just to learn a formula, I'm going to suggest a few pages to look over.

But first, the lazy way out. You said,

Right away I can see a problem. It's "flash-plugin", not plug-in. One of the things I've found while using Open Source is that it has forced me to greatly increase observational skills. Using Windows and Mac computers tends to produce lazy users. But enough preaching.

A quick Google search (you did try searching, right?!) pulled these pages up.

Fedora FAQ
The always-important man page
And a Fedora wiki guide on managing software.

Enjoy the reading, have fun, and good luck!

I agree with you
But I tried "yum install flash-plugin itself
It so happened that while posting thread I found it was showing Dictionary error that is why I changed it in the thread

Hmmm. That is annoying. And that probably shows why distro-specific questions probably shouldn't be answered by people not using the exact distro, like I did.

But anyway, I took a closer look at the YUM manpage because I'm betting that you need to enable additional repositories. If we're talking about anything like Debian, the repo including Adobe Flash will not be included in the defaults. Without doing additional searching myself for the necessary repos, I did take a read of the YUM FAQ. That wasn't so helpful, so after a quick read of fedora's online docs, I turned to Google again. Which lead me to this very informative page.

Good luck! I think you'll succeed at it now.

Right. I posted and then saw that craigevil had already covered it. He's right. I found the info on the first search page with these terms "enabling adobe flash fedora 13".
