[SATLUG] Nvidia + Flash + Firefox + (K)Ubuntu = Freeze

I recently installed Kubuntu 7.10 on a machine at home and I've been 
pretty happy with it. Everything seems to pretty much work "right out of 
the box" and I can see why (K)Ubuntu is so popular. However, I'm having 
a pretty major problem with Firefox and Flash. Whenever I try watching a 
video on YouTube the whole computer locks up. I have to turn the 
computer off physically. From some tests it seems to have something to 
do with the non-free Nvidia driver and the non-free Flash plugin. If I 
use the nv driver I don't have any lock ups. Has anyone else experienced 
this? If so, has anyone found a solution (besides not using the non-free 
Nvidia driver)?
