Yes, I will follow up on this.

Ok. Thanks for your persistence. Last night I was exploring the 
Squeakland image. A few minutes ago, I downloaded


and, just to be sure, this is what you're suggesting that I work with, yes?

Or should I be doing this?

        Building etoys.image from developer's image

Developer's image (etoys-dev.image) is included in the svn repository 

    * Press 'load code updates' button.
    * Save the image.

    * Place project files for 'Gallery', 'Tutorials', and
      'EtoysActivity' in the image directory.
    * Set screen size to 1200 at 900 ("Display inspect" helps).

    * Save as 'etoys.image'.
    * And execute:

ReleaseBuilderSqueakland new prepareReleaseImageForOLPC.

Thanks (again) in advance.
