Hi Bev

I have just installed the lastest version of ubuntu and there is no  
problems with the flash, k you are using a older version of ubuntu,  
well impressed with gnome interface now used to be a kde user.

To unpack a tar gz you can either do it on a one line or use gunzip to  
uncompress the gz part of the file to leave the tar part which from  
memory is to do
Tar -xv flash.tar

And thn place the flash library in the plugin directory of the  
firefox /usr directory

Not sure if that helps
