Yes, this method fixed the problem. I did have to comment out some lines 
in a apt file because of a md5sum error, but other than that I've had no 
lock ups with flash. What's the difference between the non-free Nvidia 
driver via apt and the driver straight from the Nvidia site? BTW, I also 
loaded up PCLinuxOS last night and I was very impressed with it, too. I 
guess I'll probably just end up going with the first distribution that 
uses KDE4 ;-)
