Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The part i dont get is putting it into the mozilla plugins i have the file extracted (its showing as green) under root@ryan:~/desktop/flash10
First of all, are you using the root account for everything? You really shouldn't be and should make a regular user account for daily use. Use "adduser" to do this.
What don't you understand about putting the file (libflashplayer.so) in ~/.mozilla/plugins? You simply need to do "mv libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins", assuming that .mozilla exists, which it should if you've actually run Firefox in the first place.
Well i just moved it..and it worked but when i go back to the root i dont see where mozilla/plugins would be. This is the newbie section just a reminder so dont get upset that i dont know how to move files
