I never had tried to install Linux flash. I did install Windows flash 
under Firefox on Wine and it worked. I found that the freebsd port for 
Wine would not work but if I downloaded the source from WineHQ and 
compiled it would work fine, however, i tried a more recent version of 
Wine which did not compile right on FreeBSD, my current properly 
compiled wine version is,  1.1.7. You can try the most recent version of 
Wine and see if tht works, if not you can try 1.1.7 which worked well 
for me.
