  ok, i'll make a note of this, but i'll wait a bit to see if anyone
else chimes in, since i already know of two sources for the alleged
recipe:

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash
  http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f10.html#flash

and before i try anything, i want to hear everyone's suggestions and,
primarily, i'd like someone to confirm that 64-bit flash support has
to be obtained *manually*.  and that simply following that "Install
Missing Plugins" button isn't going to work.  can anyone confirm that?
