I tried this on four differents machines here. It's a computer training 
room, so there's plenty of ready Linux installs on a Ghost server.

Flash works on any one of these machines with Fedora, openSUSE and Arch. 
So it's not the hardware.

Fresh install of CentOS with RPMForge configured and flash-plugin 
installed : Flash fails everywhere. Same result with flash-plugin from 
the Adobe repo.

Still more clueless than before :o)
