Problem installing flash player 9 on Ubuntu
  

I am using Ubuntu on my computer. I visited a site yesterday which asked me to install flash player 9. I downloaded it from www.adobe.com. But when I try to run that file, system says that it can't run that file. I checked the file and it is .tar.gz file. How can I run this file? Any guesses!
