    So, is there any hope at all?? Any?  thanks

There is that GPL flash plugin, but it only does some older version of
flash, and has limitations too. Not really up to the task for sites like
you mention. Those tend to use all the latest bells and whistles..

One option is to run MacOnLinux (mol) - MSIE on macos9 runs flash fine.
Not an ideal solution, but better than rebooting to native macos anyway.
There is a .deb of mol in debian/unstable atleast. See
www.maconlinux.net for more info.
