Mozilla + Flashplayer!! HELP


ok, i use Mandrake9.2 trying to install Flash player on Mozilla, when i get to the choose path to install it fuckin piss me off!!

I keeping getting the message below!!

"Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):

WARNING: Please enter a valid installation path."



i actually type in the path like "/usr/lib/mozilla" after the ":" sign, and i still not letting me install, i am running as root too.

can someone tell me which is the right path to install, and how to type it after the ":" sign? THX

did u try /usr/lib/mozilla-1.X (1.X being the version number) ? i think that /usr/lib/mozilla is only a symlink to the directory.
