    Hi and Welcome!

    Damn Small was a favorite of mine for quite a while, but has been dormant for the last couple of years.
    You'll be better off with a supported distro. If you chose DSL for minimalistic value, you could give a look at Puppy, SliTaz or antiX.

    DSL isn't being developed any more. No changes, updates, etc.

    You don't give any specifics on what happened so it would be difficult to give any advice. The other distributions mentioned would likely work better.

    In Damn small Linux. Go to /usr/lib/mozzila/plugins folder and look and see if a libflashplayer.so is in there. If not. Using terminal to look.

    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    Code:
    ls
    Code:
    harry@Biker:~/Downloads$ cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    harry@Biker:/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins$ ls
    flash-mozilla.so          gecko-mediaplayer.so      nphelix.so
    gecko-mediaplayer-dvx.so  gecko-mediaplayer-wmp.so  nphelix.xpt
    gecko-mediaplayer-qt.so   gxineplugin.so
    gecko-mediaplayer-rm.so   libjavaplugin.so
    What I would try is download
    Download plug-in for Linux 32-bit (TAR.GZ, 6.5 MB)
    from Download Adobe Flash Player 11 Release Candidate for Desktops - Adobe Labs

    Untar it in the directory you downloaded the flashplayer 11 by opening a terminal in that downloaded folder adobe sits in

    Code:
     tar -xzvf flashplayer11_rc1_install_lin_32_090611.tar.gz
    Move the extracted libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder

    Code:
    sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    I reiterate. Your terminal must be opened where your downloaded flashplayer sits before you can move it to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder.

    My showing the plugins in my folder by using the cd command takes you out of that download folder . Hope that makes sense. You can use the cd command to take you back into where libflashplayer.so sits. In mine it is a folder called Downloads.

    Code:
    harry@Biker:/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins$ cd ~/Downloads
    harry@Biker:~/Downloads$ ls
    flashplayer11_rc1_install_lin_32_090611.tar.gz  libflashplayer.so  usr
    Then open Bon Echo and check Flash

    Adobe - Flash Player

    Coaching you from a AntiX install. I don't run DSL.

    Edit: Took a while to write this out. I agree with jay and yaneck. Better off using something like Macpup, AntiX or Slitaz or Tiny Core
