You can find information on this in these pages:

OBJECT and EMBED syntax | Flash
Flash OBJECT and EMBED tag attributes

However it will never autoinstall silently. For security reasons, the user will be asked before installing anything.

You can't control auto-install of flash. The browser may not be compatible with flash. The user may not be logged in with sufficient permissions to install flash player. Flash may not exist for the user's OS (iPad anyone?). Etc, etc, etc.

If flash contains information that is vital to your site's functionality, you may want to rethink what you're doing.
