As far as I know, flash isn't supported on any 64-bit Linux distribution. Somebody probably has a workaround for this (or then not), but if you really need it, install 32-bit OS for now.

No need to scrap a whole 64 bit distro just for flash player ... just grab a 32 bit Firefox version, which will run on a 64 bit distro just fine. Or you can use libpluginwrapper which will let you use a 64 bit Firefox but may be a bit trickier to set up (don't know ... never tried).

Did you mean nspluginwrapper, btmiller? It's quite straightforward to set up and it's perfectly stable.
