What do you mean loading flash? Installing a flash player or playing a flash video. Have you considered updating to a newer version of Fedora as version 8 is very old? Please give details like what flash browser plugin is installed and exactly is wrong.

I get the feeling he has some version of linux (limpus?) that came with those models.

I'd change the OS. That OS stinks.

Do you have another computer or thumb drive available?
You can easily install another os.
Before registering to this forum I had no idea how to install a linux os, so if you need to be walked thru it we're here for you.
