The Linux Webex client might work. says it'll run 
under Fedora 10, and linux_base-f10 works well.

Failing that, there's Wine.  Firefox and the Flash plugin run under 
Wine.  There are occasional graphic artifacts and Firefox windows want a 
double-click on the close gadget to actually close, but otherwise it 
works very well. Java also runs, although there it's not 100%.  Maybe 
enough for Webex.
