Flash is built in to the firefox that is shipped with Porteus. Please describe the problem you are having in more detail. Perhaps you can start firefox from a terminal, visit a flash site and report the errors that the terminal gives you.

Which edition of Porteus do you mention?
I currently using Porteus 2.0 XFCE and I can't watch any flash video on youtube.Flash content in the web page is displayed as "f" symbol instead.

Try to reinstall porteus anew. I have xfce porteus 2.0 and it is working perfectly.

Flash content in the web page is displayed as "f" symbol instead.
flashblock addon is enabled in porteus by default. left mouse click on 'f' will enable flash content.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
