64 bit or 32 bit,. with 64 bit you may have to goto flash homepage and download that version manually as I had to with ubuntu 9.10 64 bit.

The same process applies as well to Fedora 11.

This link might help him if he is indeed using a 64bit.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/tha...inux_%28YUM%29

.. will download the 'yum flashplayer repo'
.. so you easily can keep 'flashplayer' updated.

And of course start out with installing it with 'yum'.
