Angry Installing The Native Linux Flash Player 9 On Ubuntu

I have HUGE question on how to installing Flash player 9 in UBUNTU 6.06 LTS
I have read and flollow youre steps but I have these errors, can you please help me out? I jus got this PC and I am novice with Linux, nad i like to browse video. Thank you for taking your time in my interest.
here is my technical issue:

arturo@freekbox:~$ su
Password:
root@freekbox:/home/arturo# tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz
tar: install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
root@freekbox:/home/arturo# tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz
tar: install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
root@freekbox:/home/arturo# cd install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz

This what I follow from your tutorial page:

3.1 Install The .tar.gz Version

If you have downloaded the .tar.gz version of the Flash Player 9, open a command line terminal and install it like this:

cd /home/falko/Desktop/

(Replace /home/falko/Desktop with the path to the directory where you saved the Flash Player 9 .tar.gz.)

tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
cd install_flash_player_9_linux/


Then run the setup script:

sudo ./flashplayer-installer

You will be asked a few questions:

Copyright(C) 2002-2006 Adobe Macromedia Software LLC. All rights reserved.

Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux

Adobe Flash Player 9 will be installed on this machine.

You are running the Adobe Flash Player installer as the "root" user.
Adobe Flash Player 9 will be installed system-wide.

Support is available at http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/

To install Adobe Flash Player 9 now, press ENTER.

To cancel the installation at any time, press Control-C. <-- <ENTER>

NOTE: Please exit any browsers you may have running.

Press ENTER to continue... <-- <ENTER>

Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, SeaMonkey,
or Firefox browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla): <-- /usr/lib/mozilla

dir= /usr/lib/mozilla

WARNING: An older version of the Adobe Flash Player has been detected in
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
The installer will overwrite this existing binary.


Here is where I have save Flash 9 (DESKTOP)
flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz (Description)
/home/arturo/Desktop (location)

I DONT KNOW WHAT WRONG WITH THESE SETTINGS:
/home/arturo/Desktop

tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
tar: install_ this is your own codec


tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz
cd install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz
I have try different other ways but nothing worked

Default I have done this too Falko I am not quite sure what it's but I did these

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake)
$ sudo -i
# wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...9_linux.tar.gz
# tar zxvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
# cd install_flash_player_9_linux/
# ./flashplayer-installer
# exit
Note that if you install flash in this manner, you will not automatically receive updates for Flash through Ubuntu's package manager.

Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

I have re-start mY PC
however when I go to youtube or something similiar it gives me the error the JavaScript is turned off or I have an old version of flash? Any suggestions?
I use FireFox Web Browser

Note:
should I delete the one I down load to my desktop (flash Player 9)

Thank you!

Sorry but it's really looks like you just can't extract files from archive.

look

libflashplayer.so (10)

libflashplayer.so(9)


Just copy lybflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins/ it must be looks almost like this:

HTML Code:
ls -l ~/.mozilla/plugins/

-rwxr-xr-x 1 exn exn 9543400 2009-02-03 06:03 libflashplayer.so
drwx------ 2 exn exn    4096 2009-05-28 05:51 moonlight
Try both versions of flash player, I think 10 will be work too
