Wow. One question at a time!

What version of Fedora are you using and what is your laptop brand and model number? Hence the sound card you are using.

Can yum install flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound? or flashplayer? ALSA is usually the best option at the moment for sound libraries.

Your question about skype is truncated.

Since you have not mentioned what distribution what you are using, you can have more information on this link,

No idea about your sound card (sorry) but here's how to install Flash in Fedora:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash

Amazingly, it is the first page that comes up when you google "fedora flash." Good luck!

Sorry for delay in getting back, ISP issues.

Can you install hwinfo and run it - gives details of hardware that is readable by humans. Alternately on command line
