Check the compatibility of the Adobe software with the CrossoverOffice environment (paid-for version of WINE). If you have a license anyway, you may as well use the software under Linux. Years ago either ILM or Disney put up an awful lot of money to get some Adobe software running under Linux, so you have a fighting chance. You can also check the compatibility with WINE (if you don't feel like paying the CrossoverOffice people).

For FLASH you can use some tools like swftools, but these tools don't have all the features of the Adobe software (and they probably haven't caught up on the latest version of the specification). As for Dream Weaver - nothing close, but if you don't mind something different, there are a few options including the Mozilla Composer. The few people I know who create web pages use a text editor (emacs) and write the HTML code themselves - occasionally I see them scribble on a piece of paper and maybe even write down a few numbers.

You can run Flash and Dreamweaver on linux with wine. I am doing it right now There does however seem to be this annoying refresh problem. I hope they fix this with future releases of Wine.

Wine is 100% free by the way. Use the most recent release...I think mine is wine 1.1

As I said before, there isn't really anything like Adobe's Flash for Linux, which is why I suggested using CrossoverOffice or WINE. The last time I looked at Quanta (maybe 3 or 4 years ago now) it was nothing like DreamWeaver, so I couldn't say you'd find a good and similar replacement for DreamWeaver (so back to WINE). You can certainly try Quanta and see if you like it - but as I said, if you have licenses for the Adobe software, why not use it?

Dynebolic has nvu ready to go in it, but not Flash 4 Linux unfortunately. However there is a big site at I think: osflash.org with more info.
