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:

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.

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
