Do you have your file associations set up correctly? Go to 
control-centre->file browsing->file associations. Check that you have an 
entry for applications/futuresplash. You want filename pattern *.spl on the 
general tab and  the "netscape plugin viewer" service listed on the embedding 
tab. Do the same for applications/x-shockwave-flash, filename pattern *.swf
