1) Remove previous versions

yum remove libflashsupport nspluginwrapper.i386 flash\*
mozilla-plugin-config -r

2) Download and copy the flashplayer in the mozilla plugins folder

curl http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-
| tar  -C /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ -xzf -

3) Restart ndiswrapper

mozilla-plugin-config -i

4) Restart firefox



I have not tried it myself on two machines with x86_64, but might do so, if you try it and it works, I will give it a try! :)
