Thanks for the tip Alexander.  Linux-firefox does start flash on  
youtube.com for example but crashes within a few seconds on AMD64 for  
me.  This could be a problem with the linux and linux kernels that I'm  
using.  I'm going to keep trying to get a wining combination and this  
could be a start.
