The libnullplugin should come standard with mozilla, the Flash plugin
you can get from www.shockwave.com - just extract the file, and copy the
ShockwaveFlash.class and libflashplayer.so files to
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (or wherever your plugins directory is -
usually under /usr/lib/mozilla if you use the .debs).

You'll have to restart mozilla/galeon to see the plugins - type
"about:plugins" in the address bar to see what plugins are loaded.
