Lightbulb Problems installing Flash player? New Solution!

Hi friends...
Maybe many of you had problems installing Flash player under Phoneix / Mozilla. Even following the instructions on the Mozilla site. Well I was one of them and today I got the solution!
First follow the step just as Mozilla's site describe:

"Download Flash Player 6.0r79 then extract to your
plugins directory and flashplayer.xpt to your components directory"
Those directories are under your Mozilla directory, mostly under /usr/share.

Then download the RPM package "libstdc++2.10-2.96-0.83mdk.i586.rpm" that contains C++ libraries and install it. I used it with Redhat 9 and works great!.
Then do a log out. and enjoy your Flash player!

Good luck!
