          Dude!
          Setup Oracle public yum repository according to http://public-yum.oracle.com/

          Then try the following:


          # rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
          # rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
          # yum install firefox
          # yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64 nspluginwrapper.i686 \
          alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libcurl.i686

          It may prompt to install 79 packages (210 MB)

          Then open Firefox and type "about:plugins". It should list Flash:
          File: nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so
          Version: Shockwave Flash 10.2 r159

          The above worked for me on a default install of Oracle Linux 6.

          Access Oracle support (metalink) is working. If it hangs i.e. 90 %, click the reload button.

          But perhaps you might not want to do this on a server system. It's better to do this using your regular Desktop system.
