My recommendation would be to go and grab the Flash RPM, and not try to
install it from .tar.gz or .tar.bz2.

They have an RPM specifically for Fedora Core 1.  I believe it needs
compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm, which you can get off the Fedora
installation CD 3, or do 'yum install compat-libstdc++'.

Once you do that, go:
rpm -ivh  flash-plugin-6.0.79-2.i386.rpm
or, if you haven't downloaded it already:

...everything else should take care of itself (brings up a license
agreement and installs itself).  Cheers,
