I wanted to put a swf file on the about me section of my page, but I'm not sure where to upload it in the pixelpost folder. Any information/advice would be greatly appreciated!

You can upload the flash video to your server and store in within any folder you wish but to keep things simple, you might as well upload the file to your current theme folder.
For example, hypothetically speaking, lets say you're using the Simple theme. Upload your .swf file to the templates/simple/ folder. Then open up the about_template.html file within that same folder in a simple text editor and make the necessary changes to add your flash file.
Save and upload.

Thanks for your response. I can't get the flash movie to play. I have it embedded in my about page, and I have uploaded it to the templates server. I'm not sure what to do. The code I have used to embed it is generated by dreamweaver:
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','900','heigh t','600','title','Givenchy','src','givenchy','qual ity','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movi e','givenchy' ); //end AC code

<param name="movie" value="givenchy.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<embed src="givenchy.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="900" height="600"></embed>
Is there something wrong with this code? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

The path to your movie seems wrong.
You'll want it to look something like this:
<param name="movie" value="templates/TEMPLATE-NAME/givenchy.swf" />
Replace TEMPLATE-NAME with the template folders name. (IE: simple if you were using the simple theme.)
