    Open a terminal and
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    If you're running from the live cd, you'll lose it again on reboot.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Just wanted to mention here that Knoppix 5.1.1 is well over 3 years old so you'll have all around better support if you will try later version of Knoppix.
