When you have clicked on the hammer & wrench icon the second time, just drag a placeholder on the slide with the mouse.

A dialogue panel should open up on the left side of the screen (PowerPoint 2002) and into that you can paste in the path to the animation and its dimensions.

when I click hammer & wrench icon, a lot of things come up, which one I should drag and to where?

Okay, step by step.

1) Make sure that you have the Visual Basic toolbar visible.

2) Click on the "hammer & wrench" icon. This will open another floating toolbar entitled "Control Toolbox".

3) Click on the "hammer & wrench" in the Control Toolbox. This will open a drop-down combo box menu of objects. Select "Shockwave Flash Object".

4) The cursor should now look like a "+". Use this cursor to drag/draw a rectangle on the PowerPoint slide.

5) Right-click within the rectangle and select "Properties". This should pop up a properties window into which you can type the location of the file containing the Movie (your Flash file). You may also want to set other parameters such as the height and width, though these should be picked up automatically from the inserted Flash file. You should also set "EmbedMovie" to "true" and "Loop" to true or false depending on your preference.

6) At this point, you will still only see a rectangle with a diagonal cross in it. Play the presentation to see the animation working.
