ahhh...i must be the dumbest person in the world coz i cant figure it out.
I want to install flash player for is a tar.gz file...
The readme says to do this...
"From the command line, type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer"
so i typed this into the top bar of konquere...

"tar:/home/linux/New to linux/install_flash_player_6_linux.tar.gz/install_flash_player_6_linux./flashplayer-installer"

andit says file does not exist.i know i must be going about this the wrong way
where the hell do i type this(where is the command line bit,im using kde konquere by the way) and how..
i come from windows so this is completly new to me!!!

click on a shell (open a terminal window)
change to the download directory
"tar zxvf flashplayer-moz.tar.gz"
cd "flashplayer-moz"

if it says permission denied or somesuch then do
"chmod +x flashplayer-installer"

You might need to be root to do this or something though, if you do then type "su -" and enter you root password before doing "./flashplayer-installer"

Have fun
