4. I need Shockwave!
   Shockwave is a separate plug-in often used for some web page games. 
   The only way to use Shockwave plug-in within Linux is with 
   Code Weavers Crossover Plug-in.  Crossover Plug-in runs many Windows 
   browser plug-ins in Linux fairly well, and at very low cost.

Doug is right.  For the time being, Crossover is the only way.  However,
as Gnash matures, it should be a viable, open source and GPL'd solution.
