AFAIK, ndiswrapper also wraps 32 bit plugins for 32 bit browsers. In
fact I think it wraps all plugins whether they need to be wrapped or
not.

I know this because I own a (very definitely) 32bit eeePC 701, which
was running ndiswrapper to run flash. It was using a heck of a lot of
CPU time (precious on this machine!) to wrap that plugin, such that I
couldn't watch youtube videos properly. Uninstalling ndiswrapper fixed
that.

Not sure if ndiswrapper is default in a 32bit Fedora install though,
mine was from a kickstart which might just have ndiswrapper in the
%packages section.
