For Flash, just download the tarball (the .tar.gz) file, untar it and put the file in your browser's plugins directory. For Eclipse, either go to their website, download it and look for the installation instructions, or use the SlackBuild script from Running the SlackBuild script will create a Slackware package that you can install with installpkg package name. also has SlackBuild scripts for the Flash player.
