I have a set of Linux Asus EEE PCs for my class in school.  My class uses internet software which needs to have Adobe Flash Player installed.  

I am not good enough at Linux to do this at the moment.  Can anyone help with very simple instructions, please.

I just can't seem to get it to work.  I am not great at Linux.  I can download the correct file.  I use gunzip to unpack it but then I don't seem to get the executable files which I need in order to make the installation.

The tar.gz for linux should work.

see bleow for the other two choices.You have to find out what you got on them systems.
The RPM Package Manager (RPM) is a powerful command line driven package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating computer software packages.
http://www.rpm.org/
Yum is an automatic updater and package installer/remover for rpm systems. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages. It makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm. Yum has a plugin interface for adding simple features.

I am sorry for the delay.  I have tried all kinds of different ways but to no avail.

Apparenty, the eeePC runs a very basic version of Xandros Linux.  I can download the file.  I can find the file in Console but I can't get it to install.

I actually need walking through the installation step by step.  I have lost the plot here.

I would think at this point would be a good idea to direct that question to Adobe. Maybe someone else in this forum has a better solution and can help.I am not running Linux so I cannot trouble test the issue.
 I know that Xandros  doesnt Provide Support for the Eee PC.The Eee PC is an ASUS product and is solely supported by them, including Operating system issues. The Operating System on the Eee PC is not a Xandros Product. While Xandros may have aided in the development of the Eee PC OS, it is owned and supported by ASUS.Their support is at http://support.asus.com/ for all Eee PC related questions.

I have tried the support site.  It seems hopeless but they have come up with a discussion website to try.  I shall have to try that one.  Thanks for your help anyway.
