What distribution and web browser are you using?

I could give you general instructions but those will be far less useful than what I can give knowing those two things.

Depending on your chosen distro you should be able to locate the flash plug-in in your software manager application.

With all of the required updates from adobe for flash you will have to keep downloading updates around every month, you may want to consider installing google-chrome which includes flash.

Use the Package Manager to install any software you need (both Chromium and flash-player should be available to your distro)

If that doesn't work you'll have to manually install the flash player which is not obvious nor easy to newcomers
