OK. Thanks for all the input about this. I need to bear the 
security aspect in mind. Possibly checking with Smart 
Package Manager for any further security patches for the 
10.3 version.

Does anybody have the latest flash plugin 11.2. working on 
Centos 5.7 32 bit please?

Also I see that the Adobe flash plugin is no longer being 
developed for Linux, and 11.2 is only available for the next 
5 years with security patches added.

Is there not a free alternative to Adobe's flash plugin
