I downloaded the Flash Player zip archive.  I put install_flash_player_7_linux_r73.tar.gz in my /home/dsl directory and uncompressed it.  I'm not having difficulty installing it.

The problem is that every time I reboot, I lose the installation and have to reinstall Flash Player 7.  Exactly what do I need to add to the .filetools document?

Current cheatcodes:
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda1 quiet vga=normal noacpi noapm nodma noscsi frugal home=hda3 opt=hda3 restore=hda3 root=hda3

I put flashplayer.xpt and (which should be inside that archive) in /ramdisk/home/dsl/.mozilla/plugins

From your bootcodes you appear to have a backup on hda3

That should already be backing up your ~/.mozilla directory, so these files should be there when you restore your backup on your next boot.

The default .filetool.lst contains home/dsl which will backup everything in your home directory. That being the case, one should not have to do anything special for flash plugin
