I finally got it. I just haven't installed a proper sound driver, because I 
tried to get my Terratec EWS card somehow working, but I gave that up now and 
am using the onboard sound chip on my mainboard. Who would have thought that 
flash refuses to run without a sound driver? (At least not me :))

Thank you everybody for your help!

Just one more thing: I noticed that background music won't stop even after 
changing to another site, only untill I've completely closed konqueror. And 
flash documents are very, very slow. But I guess, I can't do anything about 
that, can I?
