Turning off login/logout sounds in mandrake 9.1 & playing flash.

I'm running Mandrake 9.1 and I want to know how to turn off or change the login and logout sounds. Also I can't play Macromedia Flash programs/videos. Is flash supported under linux?

System Sounds - if you're in KDE, go into Configuration - KDE - Look n Feel - System Notifications and sort out what you want there.

Flash - yep, download the plugin at -
Get the Mandrake 9.1 version. Choose - Save As. Then once downloaded, click on the file in a file manager. It will ask for the root password, then it will install. Then, restart your browser and scan for plugins, if you need to. Then try a Flash-Enabled site.
