there is a way to get shockwave running on linux if you REALLY need it.
that is a project that sets up m$ internet exploder on your linux distro
you need to install wine first. once you have IE installed you can run shockwave.
i did it a while back as an experiment and it worked...
personally i use the above script to install ie just to test websites that i make.
i wouldn't use it to surf the net but if it's a life or death situation
and you really need to view that shockwave site then thats the answer.
