Google Analytics: Why is visitor flow disabled?

When I click visitor flow, I see this message:

You may have applied a condition such as date range, an advanced segment or a goal for which there is no data; or there may not be enough data to show results when sampling is in effect.

If I zoom the date out a little, I do see the flow chart.  How much data does it need to build the chart?

Also, the flow chart lays out like this:

start pages >> 1st interaction >> 2nd interaction

I noticed under 2nd interaction there is a landing page there.  You can't reach this through the site.  How can this type of landing page be a 2nd interaction?

>How can this type of landing page be a 2nd interaction?
Look at your first interaction.  It defaults to country. Probably the 2nd interaction is really the first.

>You can't reach this through the site.
You have a link to it somewhere or people couldn't get to it.  Nothing is really hidden from google et el unless you take it off your server.

>How much data does it need to build the chart?
I'm not sure but if you only have a few thousand monthly visitors it is not going to be much  help anyway.  It's a great tool if you are doing a/b testing or have hundreds of pages and many thousands of visitors and page views.  And visually it is pretty cool.  But for most small sites, it is not really much help.  Pay attention to your page's time on page and bounce rate.
