You might want to start with a "Basic" 3.6 image from the ftp site which 
is a bit smaller than the "Full" 3.6 image since you're a little tight 
on memory.  (Basic image is 8MB vs. 11MB for the Full image.)

You may also want to look at executing parts of 
SystemDictionary>>majorShrink if you need to pare things down further.

Welcome to Squeak!
