Try searching libcurl in your package manager, and see if it is installed.

I find the easiest way to get flash working in Debian as follows:

Remove dip consultants from /etc/apt/sources.list
Edit your apt sources to include Debian multimedia(etch main) and Debian backports(main,contrib,non-free)
Aptitude install nspluginwrapper ia32-libs-gtk
Aptitude install flashplayer-mozilla.

And that's it!
Any problems post back.
Regards.
The trooper.

What do I add to /etc/apt/sources.list for the repositories you told me?

First add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list

Code:
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main
Then aptitude update.
You will then get an error message because you need to install Debian multimedia's keyring.
You install the keyring with: aptitude install debian-multimedia-keyring
Then aptitude update again.Check for any error messages.

Next add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list

Code:
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free
Then aptitude update.
Same again you will get an error message requiring a keyring
You install this with aptitude install debian-backports-keyring.
Then aptitude update again.

Here's my apt sources for you to compare:

Code:
#
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r3 _Etch_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20080218-14:10]/ etch contrib main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r3 _Etch_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20080218-14:10]/ etch contrib main

deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main

deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free
Once your file looks like this give the commands:
aptitude install nspluginwrapper ia32-libs-gtk
Followed by:
aptitude install flashplayer-mozilla
You should now have flash working and access to lots of interesting new software!
Post back how you get on.
Regards.
