Finally Ubuntu is on my computer, awesome system, I have to say.
I was trying to watch some videos off youtube, but to do that I need to install Adobe Flash Player; I am using Ubuntu 8.10, 64-bit edition, and when I try to download the flash player, a message pops up warning me the architecture is not correct (i386). Does that mean that the flash player is available for the 32-bit edition only? If that is the case, I will install the 32-bit edition, but I just want to make sure that the problem with flash player has to do with the architecture (i386 vs amd64), rather then somehing else I am not doing right. Thanks for your precious support, bye everyone ;)

Enrico,
I had the same problem. Go to the Multimedia and Video forum and use the advice at the sticky.
It worked great for me.
