After some trial and error and some helpful tips
from Keithy and Nicolas Cellier, here is a working
procedure to load Rio into a clean 3.10.2 image. 

1.Save image.

Start with a clean image, or else save both
the image and changes of your current 3.10.2.

Mistakes in installing Rio manually can freeze the image.
Installing Rio with Universes not working yet,
so Sake is used and must be installed first. 
But first Installer must be uprgraded.

2.Upgrade installer.

Installer squeaksource project: 'Installer'; install: Installer-Core'.
Installer upgrade.

When you get the warning about: "unsaved changes in the image"
just proceed.

this step adds the categories:

3.Install Sake.

Installer upgrade install: 'Packages'.

this step adds the categories:

4.Install Rio

Installer sake install: 'Rio'.

this step adds the categories:

5.Check Rio is starting OK by using some doits.

 'myFile.txt' asFile.
 Cwd / 'myFile.txt'.
 Directory / 'myFile.txt'.
 File new:'myFile.txt'.

6.Try to recall why you wanted Rio in the first place.
