Cannot get flash player for firefox


I have used urpmi FlashPlayer and it says package already installed. Firefox says it isn't. I tried to get it from the adobe site but it tries to download at 0.1 Kbs and then goes down to 0. I know its not my firewall cause I have already downloaded other items. I just need to know how do I get FlashPlayer to work on here. I am using mandriva 2006 I checked the other software posts for this and they are similar but nobody else had a problem downloading the rpm or tar.

In the main menu is the "find" search utility, search for "libflashplayer.so" in /, if it is installed properly, this file should be in /usr/lib64/firefox-x.x.x.x/plugins or /usr/lib/firefox-x.x.x.x/plugins for 32bit. If it is in the system but not in firefox's plugins directory, copy it there, it will not work with the 64bit browser.
