It's not so difficult. Just extract its content with
tar xf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz

and copy libflashplayer.so in the firefox plugins directory (usually /usr/lib/firefox/plugins, but depends on your distro).
You can even extract the rest of the content in the root (/) to have more stuff like icons and settings control panel.
Anyway don't use the version 10, but download install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz instead (or install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz if you have a 64 bit system).

Yes I have, but no use. I have just found versions 7, 8 and 9. I'm about to try 9. Thanks. Oh, thanks for the link too. I found one the same as that but with older versions. Now I can have version 10 too. It's for developers, but they work just fine.
