As an added suggestion: sooner or later, you will also need Flip4Mac to play certain formats - the free player can be downloaded here:
I'm mentioning this because some sites are not very sophisticated or savvy enough to figure out that you are on a Mac, so they can't read your system and therefore might display the standard notice that you need Flashplayer.
And please make sure that your profile is up to date - it doesn't show in your subsequent posts.
Most software today tells you that it wants the computer to reboot, but it is always a good idea after an installation.
Before doing that, however, go to utilities and run disk utility, select the hard drive and repair permissions. Some installers have a habit of not setting permissions correctly and DU is always good to run after all installations.
If Flash has installed normally - you'll see two Flash files in
HD/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ along with other plugins
Flash Player.plugin and flashplayer.xpt
there will also be an entry in *Safari-Help-Installed Plug-ins* for
Shockwave Flash 10.x rxyz — from file “Flash Player.plugin”.
The latter will be completely blank if plugins are not enabled in Safari-Preferences-Security
Do you have the files in the right place? does Flash show in *Safari-Help-Installed Plug-ins* ?
