Thanks, I tried your above command logged in as a user, could not get it to install, so I just logged in as
root and it did not seem to work either. I tried a couple of commands and the below was the output:
[root at localhost tmp]# yum -y install flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386.rpm

Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Examining flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386.rpm: flash-plugin - 10.0.22.87-release.i386
flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386.rpm: does not update installed package.
Nothing to do
I thought it was a permissions problem and chmod'ed to 700, that did not work either. Im sure it's something simple I am missing.
