look to see where mozilla is installed!
Sometimes it's in /opt/Mozilla it really depends.

Another thing you could do, once you find the
place where mozilla is, is that you could simply
copy the two files it needs into .../lib wihtout using
the script!

Simplest way to install it is to:
1. Download Flash Player 7.0.
2. Decompress it, then copy libflashplayer.so to your Mozilla plugins directory and flashplayer.xpt to your Mozilla components directory.

I believe the correct path is
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Try that.

That's what it is for Gentoo, so a possible shot!
