Well Hi to you too.

For yahoo why not use a linux messenger like pigeon or gaim, if you have a yahoo account you just enter the info and away you go.

For adobe flash player you can get the .rpm package HERE the installation instruction are HERE

try your ~/.mozilla/plugins

or just manually copy the files extracted to /usr/lib/mozilla or to the one i gave. . . i have encountered that several times and all i need to do is to copy the flash files
