If you haven't already, you need to install the Flash Player plugin. If you are on 64-bit, you need either Adobe's 64-bit Flash Player, or the 32-bit plugin with "nspluginswrapper"*

Which distribution are you using?

*Read carefully: nspluginswrapper, not ndiswrapper

Here is where my ignorance shows- I am currently running Ubuntu 8.1, I'm not aware of which/what distributer I'm using. I've been on linux for 2 months and only just got my updates installed in the past couple of days.
I will try both of your suggestions and thank you kindly for your continued help and support.
