Getting Flash in 64bit Kubuntu

I'm trying to get the flashplayer plug-in to work in my new Kubuntu (Dapper Drake) 64 bit install. The usual error comes up (something something my architecture is not supported). Now, I know that there is no 64 bit flashplayer at this time but I did have flash working in a 64 bit Suse install. Do I need both the 32 and 64 bit browsers installed? Is there another way I can fool my system into using the plugin? Something in the Flash install script?

No matter how you solve the problem, you will have to install the 32 bit flash player. Now you have 2 options:
- Remove the 64 bit browser, install the 32 bit one and install only 32 bit plugins in there.
- Keep the 64 bit browser, install nspluginwrapper and then install 64 bit plugins directly in the browser and those that only have a 32 build (as flash...) with nspluginwrapper.
