Assuming that you have x86 linux installed and firefox is your browser, the easiest fix is to go to a flash enabled site, click on where it says to "install plugin" and it should install for you.

If that does not work, you can get an x86 linux flash plugin from the macromedia website. There are instructions on how to install it on the website.

If you have ppc linux, you are out of luck (as far as I know), but the bright side is that you can surf without a lot of ads
