Why don't I install it for you too?
Code:
wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz && 
wget http://svn.cross-lfs.org/svn/repos/patches/flashplayer/flashplayer-9.0.31.0-allowx86_64-1.patch &&
tar xf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz &&
cd install_flash_player_9_linux &&
patch -Np1 -i ../flashplayer-9.0.31.0-allowx86_64-1.patch &&
./flashplayer-installer
