just "installed" the beta about 10min. ago.
get the beta plugin from: http://www.adobe.com/go/fp9_update_b1_installer_linuxplugin
extract the tar file.
copy the file .so file (i.e. libflashplayer.so) to your plugins directory for the browser. For some reason I setup Firefox to run out of my home directory so I would copy libflashplayer.so to /home/dsl/firefox/plugins/
finally, chmod the .so file to be read/executable by all. I wasn't sure if it was going to work, so I just gave it 777.
I then just closed all open browser windows that I had and started over. It began using the new plugin right away.
If you can think of a site that needs Flash 9 to work, I could take a screen shot. The one I tested with was Line Rider at Deviant Art.
I'm addicted to this little toy whenever I have a little bit of downtime at work, etc.: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/40255643/
With the Flash 7 plugin installed, you should see a white square embedded in the page where the .swf file should be playing. Once you setup the Flash 9 beta plugin you will be able to mess around with Line Rider.
Hope that helps.
