How will I know when the update is available to me? By going to "Settings/About Phone/System Updates"? Mine says 'currently up to date.' But I'm still 2.1.
That's because the offical 2.2 update has not been released for the droid x yet once it is you will pull the update down when you check there as of now you must manually update your phone

As of right now you must manually update the phone but good luck finding the leaked RC that hit a couple days ago. Motorola send C&D letters to everyone they saw hosting it.
When the official update is ready it will be in the news section for manual updating, but if you don't want to do it that way you'll eventually get a notification popup on your phone saying there's an update waiting for you. Going into the settings to "call" the update only works if there's on available and you didn't get the notice because of poor signal or some other error, and if you don't do that it'll come down soon anyway.
Flash would have to be licensed to be included in the update. However, once the update hits you should be able to see it in the market.
I stress should because if there isn't an official Droid X version of it you might have to wait for it to be finalized before it appears.
