[K12OSN] CentOS5 + Flash + Sound

First, although I mentioned using CentOS, just to be certain, this is
Ltsp4.2 which is not supported .. but sound does work well once I get the
pieces sorted out again.
so ... following is going to be a bit confused.

Actually, it seems there are two versions of nsplugginwrapper. One that
wraps 32bit for x86_64 and another that says it wraps x86_64 bit plugins for
x86_64 (strange, but that is also what it seems to do).
In my /usr/lib64/mozilla directory, I have plugins and plugins-wrapped. I
have /usr/lib/firefox64/firefox-3.0.14 since that is the version I'm using
but all plugins go in the mozilla directory. All the items in plugins are
x86_64 versions, but they get wrapped anyway and then show up in the
plugins-wrapped directory. If I uninstall nsplugginwrapper, FF3.0.14
(x86_64) doesn't show any plugins at all whereas with nsplugginwrapper
installed, they are shown.
Confused? I know I am at the moment.
What I wanted was to wrap the 32bit v9 version of Flash (where I know sound
used to work and Flash 10 x86_64 doesn't seem to work with sound for me).
So, since using the x86_64 seems to be a bit problematic, I am going to try
reverting back to just downloading the precompiled 32bit version, install it
in /opt, create symlinks from /usr/bin/firefox to it and go from there at
the moment. I was hoping to move to just x86_64 on my system but given the
way things have gone, it may be time to try something else.
Not sure if I will try this today though since I leave for a week and making
a change late on a Friday afternoon just before vacation seems to be begging
for problems on Monday. FF3 is stable as long as teachers don't visit
aol.com (which takes forever to load for them).
