Adobe Flashplayer 11 on Aspire One with Linpus Linux Lite

1) Can I play bbc iplayer on my Acer Aspire One?

Yes,I can! I found out that all I needed to do was download the latest version of Firefox 6 first (it updated to 7 by a download). Following Mark Greaves instructions on

Then I download flashplayer10 before Version 11. Again, I followed Mark Greaves instructions.

2) If so where can I find detailed installation instructions to download and install adobe flashplayer11. Note: I have never downloaded or installed software on a linux laptop.

Comment: I cut and pasted instructions into the Terminal . Its easy once you have the right help.

The problem with Linpus Lite is that it is very outdated and really dumbed down. You will not be able to run newer software on it in a simple way.
The best solution would be to replace it with a recent and supported distribution.
