I assume you are using firefox.

IIRC, there is a bug in the installer, that puts the files in the wrong 
place. Search in your libraries to see if you can find a file with flash 
in the name:
find /usr/lib -name '*flash*'
Once you find them, as root, copy them into firefox's plugin directory:
sudo cp <filename(s) that came up in the search> /usr/lib/firefox/plugins

(Ignore any line breaks in the last command - I can't figure out how to 
turn 80-width off for specific lines)
Good luck!
