Any Alternative Non-Adobe Flash Players for Linux Fedora 11?

My husband, the computer software, firmware, and hardware designer, and electronics engineer; who is Director of Engineering, gave me; the technologically-challeged housewife, this problem to solve:
(Hey, just try getting your husband to drive you somewhere for vacation if he is a metro bus driver!)
I have downloaded AND installed Adobe Flash Player 10 for Linux Fedora 11 (Leonidas) and it does not work. Forget about contacting adobe support (they can't, or won't help) or re-downloading the software - WINE won't let me (I get a popup saying it is already installed, well DUH).
The problem (I think) is that I have to somehow be able to authorize or authenticate the Flash Player as root, but I am not sure. But, if that is the case, I need to locate where Mozilla Firefox located the "SETUP" program itself in the filesystem. No one has been able to help me.
I think an easier solution would be to find an alternative to Adobe Flash Player for Linux Fedora 11. Are there any?

You really shouldn't create multiple threads on the same topic. You've had replies to your other threads, so people are trying to help you. Why not reply to the replies you've gotten, if there's something you don't understand/can't do?
