Too bad they botched the yum repo file and wired it for 64-bit only.
Folks with a mixture of 32-bit and 64-bit systems now have to be careful
to not rsync that file across all their machines. Much better would be
to use "$basearch" instead of the "x86_64" or "i386". Folks might want
to use this as their adobe flash repo file:

/etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux.repo:
[adobe-linux]
name=Adobe Systems Incorporated
baseurl=http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
