  I don't know about Adobe Flash, I was talking about GNU Flash. You
should be able to install it from the root terminal window on the olpc.
(Ctrl-Alt->F1). Then do a "yum install gnash gnash-plugin" which should
do the trick. That build may not have the video support enabled as that
requires ffmpeg. I'd have to check, as I primarily work with my own
builds as a Gnash developer.

  The easy way to install the Adobe one is probably to extract the flash
plugin .so file from the downloaded package, and copy it to
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins on the X0.
