If you have never used the portsnap system before, the first thing you have to 
do is:
portsnap fetch extract

Then every time you need to update the portsnap you have to use the command:
portsnap fetch update

I fyou want to install the linux compatibility system you must first load the 
linux kernel module using (as root):
kldload linux

In /etc/fstab you have to add the following two lines:
linproc  /usr/compat/linux/proc  linprocfs rw  0  0
proc     /proc                           procfs    rw  0  0

then mount these filesystems using:
mount linproc
mount proc

as root

Then you should be able to install the linux ports you want for the flash 
player, emulators/linux_base-f10 and www/linux-f10-flashplugin10
