I woudl advise you to get APT-GET to install software. It's really easy to use. Just download the rpm for your distro from www.rpmfind.net
and install it. Then install the Synaptic GUI interface. All your installation problems are henceforth solved. You can install the flashplayer plugin from APT. To get streaming video, install mplayer and the mplayer-plugin. Feel free to ask any other questions you have.
