That is not a distribution.

I own no DVDs of any sort.  I have no need for them.  I suspect he doesn't

Description: free Flash movie player
 Gnash is a free Flash movie player, which works either standalone, or as
 plugin for Firefox/Mozilla or Konqueror. Currently it is in a alpha state.
 The plugins are under heavy development at this time.
 Gnash supports the majority of Flash opcodes up to SWF version 7, and
 a wide sampling of ActionScript classes for SWF version 8.5. All the
 core ones are implemented, and many of the newer ones work, but may be
 missing some of their methods.
 Included in the Gnash is an XML based messaging system, as specified in
 the Flash specification. This lets a flash movie communicate over a TCP/IP
 socket, and parse the incoming XML message. This lets a movie be a remote
 control for other devices or applications.
 This package includes the standalone GTK+-based OpenGL player.
