how to plugin mozilla shockwave player?

i seem to be in the technician's "ground rule zero:" the user always lies.
not having kept notes on all changes i've made makes me (the user) a liar. this said, i should also note that i know just enough (minimal unix/sun/solaris courses in 2001) to make me mad. i've installed the redhat 9 on my dell latitude CPi A (shrike on a i686).
using mozilla on the kde as shipped with the ditstro, every shockwave item displays as a puzzle-piece placeholder that tells me i need the shockwave/x-application plugin.
using konqueror web browser, three (or four) times i download (dial-up modem) from the linux users place on the macromedia site.
every download event has been interrupted (i forget the exact term in the messages). the transfer rate declined rapidly from 4.7kb/per, to 2.xkb/per,to 0....
i think the transfer was almost complete each time, and each time the 'forgotten-exact-term-in-message' displayed in the download manager just before 'finished.'
i got another 'forgotten-exact-term-in-message' when attempting to unpack the file(s) with konqueror and in a terminal. is it terminal, doc?
i've read jeremy's article on playing dvd's & videos. some insight gleaned. thank you.
i did not read much on the linux users place on the macromedia site. more in(hind)sight (my bad). i have kept one download (file:.../konquerorAdz2Ra).
i'm not real comfortable diddling the system files, though i do have a fresh, working bootdisk.
take me by the hand or shove my face in the proper direction, please.
