Sorry, what I meant by "out of the box" is that you just need to add
the packages. No configuration files or env variables need editing. As
Warren mentioned before I just added the adobe release rpm and used
yum to install flash from within the chroot.

I am currently trying to get Virtualbox to work as a local app, but no
luck yet. The client can't seem to load the Virtualbox kernel module.
If anyone manages this please post to list. Once this is accomplished
we can teach Linux System administration using Virtualbox running
locally. :)
