I'm not entirely sure what you mean ... npsqueak.so simply executes
npsqueakrun (it tries ~/.npsqueak/npsqueakrun first before the system
location). The plugin also passes the image name (it looks for
SqueakPlugin.image in ~/.npsqueak/ and then in the system location).
So if you want to modify the image you need to copy it to ~/.npsqueak
(unless npsqueakrun copied it automatically, don't know how it is set-
Anyway npsqueakrun just executes a regular Squeak VM, redirecting its
window into the browser plugin window - you could modify that script
to your heart's liking :)

Hehe, yes, back in 1999 ... jeez.
