[ubuntu] Can AMD Athlon XP 3000+ run flash?

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, ive got Ubuntu to finaly work on my machine, but flash will not work. I have tried every fix I can find to make flash work. Installing the flash plugin etc to using a command line to install flash. Nothing works. Youtube has a black box in Firefox and chrome says it could not load shockwave flash. If i disable flash in chrome youtube works but says that it has to be downloaded, however any other site that uses flash videos do not work. I'm quite new to linux so things will have to be explained to me as a newbi. Thanks for your help. (Hardware)
