"We do not support PowerPC anymore"
Your PowerBook has a Power PC processor, for which the download you are trying to install does not support.

10.1.102.64 is the highest flash player your PPC PowerBook will be able to use.
Anything beyond that is designed to be installed on a Intel Mac.
There is a few hacks out there to get newer versions of flash player working on a PPC Mac, but I don't recommend doing it.
The only thing you can do, is buy a Intel based Mac like a MacBook Pro.

You can check here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/ to see which version you should install for your Mac and OS. Note that version 10,1,102,64 is the last version available to PPC Mac users*. The latest version,10.3.183.23 or later, is for Intel Macs only running Tiger or Leopard, as Adobe no longer support the PPC platform. Version 11.4.402.265 is for Snow Leopard onwards.
* Unhelpfully, if you want the last version for PPC Macs, you need to go here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14266.html and scroll down to 'Archived Versions/Older Archives'. Flash Player 10.1.102.64 is the one you download. More information here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/838/cpsid_83808.html
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
and also that you follow the instructions closely, such as closing ALL applications first before installing. You must also carry out a permission repair after installing anything from Adobe.
(If you are running a PPC Mac with Flash Player 10.1.102.64 and are having problems with watching videos on FaceBook or other sites, contributor Texas Mac Man suggests the following solution which fools the site into thinking that you are running the latest version:)
Download this http://www.steelbin.com/FPforFBPPC.zip to your desktop, unzip it, and replace the current Flash Player plug-in which is in your main/Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder, (not the user Library). Save the old one just in case this one doesn't work.

Thank you Klaus1 for the link to replace my fading foxfire. I was directed to this discussion by another Apple user. I am so greatful for finding this work around. Hopefully, it has bought me a little more time using my G5 with Tiger.
