error using yum to install flash fedora core 5

I just recently installed Fedora Core 5 a couple of days ago. I've been following instructions from
for installing Flash. When I try yum -y install flash-plugin
as root I get the following error message:
yum -y install flash-plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
dries [1/6]
core [2/6]
updates [3/6]
freshrpms [4/6]
macromedia [5/6] [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')>
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: macromedia
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from macromedia: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from macromedia: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Here is a copy of my macromedia.repo file in /etc/yum/repos.d:

name=Macromedia for i386 Linux

I've tried taking the comments out of the other 2 baseurls but still same error messages.
Do I need add another baseurl address?

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe the macromedia site is down.
