please can someone tell me what is the easiest way to detect which version of flash player the user is using?

More specifically I need to weed out wether they are using flash player 8 or below.
So if they have flash player 8 they will get flash8.swf
but if they have lower than flash player 8 (ie 7,6,5,4,3,2,1) they will get flash7.swf

Whats the simplest and easiest way to do this?

There is no way to do that using plain HTML or CSS. You may want to post this question in the javascript forum. You might also want to reference this page: http://www.quirksmode.org/js/detect.html. Good Luck!
