Thanks for your reply!

I noticed the inisqueak yesterday (after I already manully unzipped the 2 gz 
files). Is the idea that if I run it after install, then all I have to do is 
to execute "squeak" with no parameters and it will point to the installed 
image? If so, that's good, although it would be nice if running "inisqueak" 
was not necessary (and be part of the rpm install if possible), while minor 
it would be nice to have sort of a 1-click install.

Regarding the Games, etc, I read more on it on Swiki after I wrote, and yes, 
it appears there will eventually be avalable in "full" image. It was just a 
bit confusing seeing empty ellipse like that, and, most importantly, clicking 
on "Graphics" everything froze. I just wanted to provide feedback, not sure 
it's very useful,

Thanks, Milan
