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- 
up currently).

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.
