Neither. Flash is not Free Software, meaning we can't (re)distribute it
the LiveUSB nor with Fedora 9. Installing Flash 10 is pretty easy now,
since we can't include it, the question becomes should we just have some

documentation on the website about how to install it (it's only about
steps), or should we create some icons/installers that go on root's
desktop that 
install it, similar to what was in K12LTSP? If the latter, we'd have to 
maintain a repo to store them, or get them into RPM Fusion or some other
repo; I 
don't think we could use the Fedora repos because of the license issues
Flash, even though we'd just be providing an installer. So, that all
rather messy, which leads one back to just providing a short how-to for 
installing Flash. Same is true for some of the other add-ons that came
