With the yum repo installed, you then need to start a terminal
(Applications->System Tools->Terminal, I think -- I don't use gnome, so
I am not sure), then in the terminal window you type:

sudo yum -y install flash_player

Assuming you are loged in as a sudo enabled user (and you really should
NOT be loged in as root).  Sudo will ask for a password -- enter your
user's password.
