Slackintosh on PPC - Flash Player Plugin

Hey, All:

I'm a newb so please go easy on me. ;-)

I've got an old G4 Mac PPC that I installed Slackintosh 12.1 on. Everything works great, but I've yet been able to make flash work, which makes browsing YouTube very uninteresting.

I've tried using the SlackBuild workaround, but it did not work.

Does anyone know if there is a way to make the flash-player plugin work on this system, or another way to view flash content w/o the official flash plugin?

Thanks in advance.
