    I have installed BT3 to my harddrive not running live I'm sure FireFox has FlashPlayer 9 installed by default? if you want to update to the latest version..

    Adobe's website - get (dot) adobe (dot) com/flashplayer
    select version to download
    .tar.gz for Linux
    I agree / save to disk.

    Change directory to where you have downloaded the tar.gz file to;
    cd /root

    tar xzf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz && cd install_flash_player_10_linux && flashplayer-installer

    Installer starts..
    Press Enter
    Press Enter to continue.

    Enter Mozilla install path (this is the default FireFox path on BackTrack 3);
    /usr/lib/firefox

    Hope this helps...

    Go to Adobe - Adobe Flash Player
    Download ".deb for Ubuntu 8.04+"
    Code:
    apt-get install libnspr4-dev libnss3-dev
    dpkg -i install_flash_player_10_linux.deb

    To play videos you can install mplayer
    Code:
    apt-get install mplayer

    Post Easy

    All I had done what went to where it told me to install the update, installed it to root, it saves it temp on your windows but runs on your live cd. The thing I have noticed though is every time I reboot I will have to re-install it
