Hello all, I am new to BLAG so if this sounds like a newbie question it most likely is. Well I went to the adobe flash site and tried to download it. It detected I was using GNU/Linux. So it gave me a list of file options. But I tried downloading all of them and none of them were readable by my BLAG. So If you could tell me if I have to download something first or what. It would be great help to me

BLAG is 100% free GNU/LINUX distribution. So no adobe flash player. You can install Gnash.
For a more recent version of gnash you can install one here: http://fedora.mirror.iweb.ca/updates/9/i386.newkey/
You'll have to install gnash and gnash plugin. This version works fine on youtube, for example.
It is possible to install adobe flash player with the rpm package on the adobe site.
But I can't encourage you to do it!
There is a section on the forum for non-free package. Please use it to discuss about such non-free software

On the link, all the files on the site end with *.rpm

Yes! On blag (derived from fedora) binary packages are rpm.
Dowload the two I name and install them. Gnash first and gnash plugin after.
If gnome-packagekit is installed you can install them when clicking on them; if no rpm -i thenameofthepackage.
To install gnome-packagekit: yum install gnome-packagekit (in root).
