Angry Flash installation mandrake 9.1

Well I am really new to the linux world I was trying to install flash I installed to the usr/lib/mozilla file but it would not allow me to install it to the plugins file. I thought it would work but it did not It is not even showing it being installed anywhere when I look at the mozilla files. What am I doing wrong? I have searched everywhere for this answer. My permissions are ok and It says it installs but it dont any help is appreciate.

did you make sure you were root when you installed it ???

become root, and install the pluggin (to the correct pluggin directory)

then run mozilla from command line (you may need to change permission's of the pluggin)

now, run mozilla from command line, unless you are lucky, you will probably get an error while mozilla is trying to load the pluggin, it might mention it cant find a shared library...

if so, go to and type in the , and download a package that provides it.
