You might consider adding the following lines to your apt configuration:

rpm apt/fedora/1 macromedia
rpm-src apt/fedora/1 macromedia

So you can do 'apt-get install flash-plugin'

At  , you can find more information (also yum 
config)  for this flash-plugin rpm.  Watch out: the rpm popups a license in 
an x window: you can't install it if you don't have X access.

Kind regards,
