    I am new to Linux too but nobody can help if you don't know how or what to ask. Before start using Slack read carefully this book it will help you:The Revised Slackware Book Project

    I think the OS you have installed is 64 bit, luckily as of a month ago adobe released a test version for 64 bit systems
    Adobe Labs - Flash Player 10 for Linux 64-bit Alpha Release Notes
    Im a bit new at this as well, so I may be horribly wrong
    but I hope it works
