I will assume by the description of your problem in installing the flashplayer that you are using a 64-bit distro. Adobe has yet to create a 64-bit version of flashplayer for linux. Full stop. The ubuntu forums have many posts with guides on how to alternatively isntall 32-bit firefox so that you can get the 32-bit flashplayer for linux working in your browser.
Again, this is Adobe's fault for not supplying a 64-bit linux version of flashplayer. It affects ALL versions of linux. In fact, even in 64-vista the auto-installer doesn't work, but there IS a manual installer that works in that case.
ok.. wait a minute... I have a 64-bit MD.... instead of trying to go through the hassle of installing individual packages (because I couldn't get flash installed by itself), I just went in through add/remove programs (adept_installer) and installed the Ubuntu/Kubuntu Restricted extras and now flash is working...
