How do I download Flash player to Linux?

I just now got linux; therefore, I need to download a few things. I need to download flash player, so I can watch videos on Youtube. However, when I download it, it tells me:

"Could not open "flash-plugin-"

Archive type not supported."

Okay. Then how do I do this? Will I get this message every time I try to download a program to Linux?

Yes, I did try to download one of the many Linux versions of Flash. I know it’s not my computer because my dad’s computer done the same thing that mine is doing.
This is a new computer with Windows 7 Ultimate beta version and Vista. I am just playing with Linux for fun.
I got it to work. I already know who’s going to get the best answer. Thanks. I just needed that little piece of info.

How do I install Flash Adobe onto Linux?

I have Ubuntu 6.06 and I’m trying to download Flash Adobe for Linux so I can watch videos. Unfortunately, I am not much of an expert with computers. When I am about to download, it gives me 3 versions of Flash to download. They are:
.tar.gz for Linux
.rpm for Linux
YUM for Linux

Also, once I download, I come to somethihow to use it, there is one folder, another folder in that, and then 2 more seperate folders. Out of those 2 folders, there is one folder in each. One says Flash plug-in, and the other one says doc.
Inside the Flash Plugin, there are 5 more new things, although they aren’t folders anymore. They are set up, READ ME, License,, and homecleanup.
I have no idea what any of the above is. If anyone could give me step by step instructions, even if it is extremely obvious, I would appreciate it.
Btw, I also only have 99% disc space. If that is a problem, I’ll start deleting as much as I can.
