you could create a script that would copy over the file once the installation is complete

also there seems to be more information over here

finaly got the right information from there admin guide, tis a PDF and can be found here:
http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_admin_guide/flash_player_admin_guide.pdf
it tells you exactly what you need

im not the best at doing this but here is a attempt to create the bat file.
you will just need to edit the name of the installer flash_player_installer_name.exe to what ever the name is called
i hope it works.
the batch file is in the code Snippet

the following must be in the mms.cfg file

AutoUpdateDisable = 0

@ECHO OFF
flash_player_installer_name.exe /s
COPY mms.cfg C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash /y

Open in new window
