Download Adobe Flash Player for Linux ?

I know what package & everything to download, but I can’t. Here’s what happens:
I click download. The box that says ‘Opening adobe-release-i1386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm’ pops up.
The options are ‘Open with’ & ‘Save file’. I’m supposed to open it, correct ? So, theres the drag down box next to ‘Open with’ for what to open it with. The selected one is ‘Archive Manager (default)’. This is the one I try to use, because it’s the default & when I looked under the other options I couldn’t find anything that seemed appropriate. So, I hit OK & two boxes pop up. One is just completely black & the other one is on top of it & it says ‘Could not open adobe-release-i1386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm. Archive type not supported.’ I have no idea what to do. I’ve looked through the other options for what to open in under, but I’m lost. PLEASE help. PLEASE. I can’t do anything if I don’t have Adobe Flash Player and it’s SO annoying. So, PLEASE help me. And, please be as detailed as possible. Thanks[:

It keeps giving me the same result a box will pop up saying
open with
save with

\Could not open "flash-plugin-"

Archive type not supported.

How do I download Flash player to Linux?

I just now got linux; therefore, I need to download a few things. I need to download flash player, so I can watch videos on Youtube. However, when I download it, it tells me:

"Could not open "flash-plugin-"

Archive type not supported."

Okay. Then how do I do this? Will I get this message every time I try to download a program to Linux?

Yes, I did try to download one of the many Linux versions of Flash. I know it’s not my computer because my dad’s computer done the same thing that mine is doing.
This is a new computer with Windows 7 Ultimate beta version and Vista. I am just playing with Linux for fun.
I got it to work. I already know who’s going to get the best answer. Thanks. I just needed that little piece of info.

When i tried opening the archive downloaded from the Unix section this message appear "Could not open "rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm"

Archive type not supported."

What can i do?
