New way: Make sure you have the non-free repositories in your sources.list, then:

# aptitude install sun-java5-jre sun-java5-plugin

Old way.

For Flash, all I did was click OK when the browser came up saying I needed a plugin.

All this, of course applies only to 32-bit OSes, and if you actually have a new install of Etch, you should have IceWeasel instead of Firefox.

Furthermore these things have been posted many times. A simple search of the forums would have returned these answers quickly.

Looks like Adobe took that file offline so the installer is unable to download the flash 9 player install file..
it should be trying to grab the file from here:

not that beta plugin version in your posting..
