You might also want to consider replacing Linpus (which is dumbed-down and partially proprietary) with a better distro.

You might have to download then manually install the flash plugin. Once unzipped, the flash plugin should be copied to the mozilla plugins folder (normally /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, but I'm not sure where it would be there with linpus)

No, that wont work. Linpus is a RPM distro, flashaid only works on ubuntu systems (though it now has 'debian and ubuntu systems' on the page, last time I tired it with debian it failed).

1. open a terminal and navigate to the directory where install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz is kept.
2. type
Code:
tar zxvf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
3. Tar will create a directory where the driver is found. cd to that directory.
4. You should see a file called "libflashplayer.so"
5. Copy the file to where you place the FFx plugins. It's typically in a directory called /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
6. Restart FFx and you're done!
ciao,
jdk
