Java - use j2re1.4.2 and put a symbolic link to /j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so in Mozilla's plugins folder.
Flash, copy libflashplayer.so into Mozilla's plugins folder. The libstdc++ libs that are installed by Fedora are only the newest ones. They won't work with Flash plugin. The answer is to find and install the backward compatible version of those libs. The RPM filename is compat-libstdc++(verion).rpm . I got that from this thread. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=33636
I don't know about the realplayer problem. Put the error message into google and see what you get.

1. Download the latest and greatest java rpm from java.com. Substitute the latest version number in these steps. Copy it in the root directory. (or where ever you want.) Note, where it says "[tab]" this means to use the tab key to "autocomplete" the line instead of typing the complete file name.
2. cd /root
3. sh j2[tab] (unpack the self-extracting binary)
3. rpm -ivh j2[tab] (install the RPM file)
4.Make a soft link from the plugin to the Mozilla plugin directory Note! All on one line! And don't forget to use the TAB key! Also note, it's jre1 the number one, not the letter "L"
