Default Adobe Flash Player vs. Shockwave Flash in Firefox 3.0

I just want to confirm both aren't the same thing.
I started using Linux with Fedora 9.
I installed the Shockwave Flash plugin on the Firefox 3 browser included in the system.
Then I upgraded to Fedora 10 and the Flash plugin showed to be present. (I was happy for it.)
But I tried to play a CD with a Flash presentation on it and it wouldn't.
So, I believe Flash Player should be installed.
Am I right?

There is an instruction to add the Adobe Flash Player repository at http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfec...p-fedora-10-p3

"Next we add the Adobe repository which provides the Flash player and the Adobe Reader:
rpm -Uvh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm

Is this repository right for a x86_64 machine?
Any comment?
