    I think Firefox usually looks for plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, so try downloading the first file (Installer) on the Flash Player 9 download page linked to by Devils Caspar. Extract it, then copy the libflasplayer.so file to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins - I set up our PC's here with this (one on FC5) using this method, and it seems to work.
