Installing Flash in Firefox for Red Hat Linux Enterprise 4

I have installed Red Hat Linux Enterprise 4 with "Everything" as option for installing all the available software packages. So far Firefox 3.0 is working fine but it needs Flash player to display me some flash enabled site. When I tried through the browser it told me to install flash manually. So I downloaded flash RPM package and trued to run rpm -Uvh on it, it showed the following error -

rpm -Uvh flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
glibc >= 2.4 is needed by flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release.i386


So now I tried to download and know how to install glibc and found many sites tell to use yum to install it. Howver, I don't have YUM installed as well.

Any idea, how should I proceed with the flash plugin installation? I will appreciate any comment on this.

I think YUM is included with RHEL 4. Although maybe not until RHEL 5. I highly recommend it, since it will also chase down, download, and install any sub-dependencies as well.

If yum isn't in your basic RPM set, check one of the extension collections such as EPEL.
