I converted file to a .flv file.  Is there a way to have a text link to that video on his website rather than including the entire player?  Client wants to have an entire page with text links to videos.

You can create a page with a series of text links to video files(the same way you would link a typical page, just using the html tags to link <A HREF=/video.flv>, however .flv doesn't have a lot of "out of the box" support on people's pcs, meaning they would just be prompted to download the .flv file.  You may wish to use a free video converter to change it to a more common type of file, like .mpeg.

Isn't flash considered one of the most common formats?

Yes, but unless your links lead to a flash video player, not just the .flv file, people will have problems opening it (windows media player will not open .flv files by default, no out-of-the-box support for the format).
