Yes, thank you, I would like to get the VM for Irix 5.3.

I'm not sure what you mean by this.  From what I saw of the directions
on the Squeak web page, I need four files, only one of which is OS
specific.  Is that correct?  So I could get them, say, from any
subdirectory on the ftp server that holds Unix files, and then replace
the VM with the one you send me -- correct?
