Which is unsurprising, since RHEL 3 is based on RH 9.

I can understand the sentiment, but depending on what you're doing,
you may ultimately end up having to download and install a package
directly, or even (*gasp*) build something from source. It's not
*that* scary. Really. :-)

I've got an easier solution. Edit /etc/yum.conf and add the
- -- begin --
name=Macromedia Flash Player for Red Hat Linux 3
- -- end --
Uncomment one of the repository URIs as appropriate. You'll also
need to either set gpgcheck=0 (not recommended) or install the Fedora
project GPG key which is used to sign these packages. If you don't
already have it, do (as root):
> rpm --import http://www.fedora.us/FEDORA-GPG-KEY
Then you can simply:
> yum install flash-plugin
and everything should work as you would expect.
The usual "yum update" should track the Macromedia repository as
