What browser are you using? This is a
browser-specific issue. I can say that it's
likely that Flash and Java are supported
if Flash and/or Java haven't been installed
and configured on your machine....

Probably you have "exec twm" in your startup
files ....how are you starting X in the first place?
If you are using "startx" from the commandline,
then you should *probably* add an "exec kde"
(or kde-session or whatever the real name is ...
I use Gnome) to your ~/.xinitrc, and comment
out whatever line is actually calling the other
It is also possible to configure the machine
to run xdm/gdm/kdm (K display manager)
from /etc/ttys or as a daemon....
