Dear Techtalk,

I am running SuSE 7.3 install.

I cannot run(?) sites requiring Flashplayer in any of my browsers. 

I looked in Netscape and libflashplayer.so is in opt/netscape/plugins. 

I checked out Flashplayer in a download and the  readme on Flashplayer 
expects it will go in usr/lib/netscape/plugins

I do not have a netscape/plugins directory under usr/lib.

Do I create this directory and then - 

cp /opt/netscape/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/netscape/plugins/ ?

I would also like to get it working in Mozilla and the Star Office 
Browser. What should I do there?

Also I am finding that my POP connection is dropping out and I get a PPPD 
error 12 prompt from KDE dialer. When KDE dials in the wait for PPPS is 
very slow and half the the time drops out before getting a connection. I 
have no problem in wvdial connection. My ISP assures me they are not 
having any problems. Is there a config/setting in KPPP that I am missing. 
I have it set up with CR/LF line termination  and CRTSCTS flow and full 
max 60 sec pppd time out. The modem runs ATZ ATM1l configgy thingo.

Lastly does anyone have a favourite editor they use for writing HTML. A 
friend of mine raves about BBEDIT for Mac and all the HTML auto checks it 
has. Does Linux have something as neat?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
