Response to: Answers to plugin issues

Hello-my name is Antonio Sanchez from Mexico. I am running Sun's linux. I am running Mozilla 1.6, I tried to install the Macromedia Flash plugin from macromedia.com I tried to double click on the executable, FLASH_PLUGIN_INSTALL.exe, however I was faced with an error saying it can not open such files. I am complete lost for word, why can I not run the Flash plugin installer? I have spent the last 16 hours compiling my 2.4 kernel to 2.6 - yet the problem still exists. Since that did not work due to some issues, I decided to re-install the whole operating system from scratch three times. I am lost for words.

    I think that you tried to install the Windows program. I Believe that flash 6 is a tar program...
    It requires copying a file to a certain directory..
    I couldn't get it installed in Mozilla Linux, but did in Opera for Linux...
