    No doubt you have already found more than a few websites that also do not support IE 6. There is a possible solution for you called KernalEX, an Open Source compatibility layer with an aim to allow running Windows 2000/XP-only applications on Microsoft Windows 98 and Microsoft Windows Millennium operating systems.

    http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Category:Compatible_applications
    The above link describes what you will be able to install with KernalEx.

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/kernelex/files/
    You can get KernalEX at the above link.
    You will need to use Firefox as a browser for the newer flashplayer to work with this, the newer versions of Flash will not work with IE6 even with KernalEx installed.

    I must say that I have not used KernalEx myself, yet.

    Mark, I'm on Firefox 3.0 and also have KernelEX installed on my pc.
    Will try later to download Adobe Flash Player later today.
    I will let you know what progress I have made, hopefully later today.
    Thanks for your help.

    Adobe Flash Player was successfully installed using KernelEX in my
    Firefox Browser.
    Thanks for all your help.
