you will not need anti-virus because you are not running a Microsoft product for which 99% of viruses are written for.

get flash from

get java from
You will have to make symbolic links to certain java files in your mozilla plugins directory, go here to find out how to do this

Anti-virus: you shouldn't really need one (yet, heh heh), but if you want, check out an app called Clamav (and for KDE it's front-end, Klamav)

Flash player: from Macromedia, of course. surf there and you will find an installer (for browsers: Mozilla has directions for you in their site, basically copy or link, can't remember which, some files from the extracted flash player package to some browser dir)

Java: surf to and grab the java-runtime environment package (often called j2re so you'll find it...Java2RuntimeEnvironment). that should do...again, installing it to browsers depends on the browser, but their websites will have info for you.
