Exclamation conflict issues between tzdata and libc6 on ubuntu 8.04

Hi everyone,
Im trying to install flash player on my pc, however when i tried to install it by running the .deb file, it said : Error : Dependancy is not satisfiable: libcurl3 so i downloaded libcurl3 and got the same error just for libc6, so i have downloaded libc6 and attempted to install it, but i get the folloing error "Error: Conflict with the installed package 'tzdata'" and now i have been looking for tz data to try and remove it, with no luck. can someone please guide me on how to install libc6.
Many thanks in advance

Use synaptic by navigating to System/Administration/Synaptic_Package_Manager and select the package you want to install and all dependencies will be taken care of. Or you can do it via command line with a command similar to: "sudo apt-get install the_package_I_want_installed_properly_please". You may be trying to install a wrong version, run command: "apt-get update" first.

One would think, with that many Debian based distributions in your profile you would know this by now.
