That guide is almost 3 yrs old. Totally useless.

When you get the prompt to hit return for /bin/sh, do so. You will be
given a prompt, then you can mount your partitions, fire up vi & undo
everything you did to "install" flash. After that reboot into the
normal, multi-user mode.

To install flash, search the archive of this list. In the last few
months the installation of flash has come up more than once. It's
fairly straightforward: install linux-flashplugin & then
nspluginwrapper & run it. It works with native firefox.
