right i have unzipped flashplayer and its giving me this dir list

root@springfield:~/install_flash_player_7_linux# dir
flashplayer-installer flashplayer.xpt

now usually i would think ./ would work or even just flashplayer-installer

can anyone see where im going wrong?

Hi jay_deacon

Is it working...? If it isn't working, go to the directory were it is unzip and and type this at the root of the directory, but make sure you as login as root and type this in ./flashplayer-installer this should install the flash player...!

Good Luck....
