What version of Flash does she have? Type "about:plugins" in the address bar in Firefox to see information about installed plugins, including Flash. "apt-cache show flashplugin-nonfree" in a terminal should also work.

Normally on Ubuntu, you can upgrade Flash via normal software/update manager programs, but the "Dellbuntu" preinstalled on the Mini's doesn't see as many updates.

But you should still be able to go straight to Adobe's site, and download the .deb package, and install it according to their instructions.

As for "oovoo", it looks like it only runs on Mac and Windows. You might be able to get the Windows version running in Wine, but don't count on it. (earlier versions of oovoo get "garbage" ratings running in Wine)
