You should download
http://ftp.squeak.org/various_images/SqueakLight/MinimalMorphic.7246.zip as
the image have the logic for deal with monticello, .sar and more.
See examples of this in http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6056
Now MinimalMorphic have the same logic and is 7.3 mb
It's full 3.10 compatible and with help of all I hope in the future become
3.11 compatible.
