The old SqueakLight is for you.
In his bare form have 3.7 mb and is 3.7 compatible.
In his .dev form , you could download from http://www.squeak.org/Download/
I don't follow this now, my current work is the more advanced Squeak ,
SqueakLightII, see http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6056
I afraid the move to 3.8 and beyond have the collateral damage of bigger
size and I have experiments showing no useful image could have less of 5 to
6 Mb in size and being compatible with newest tools and projects.
I scheduled myself for connecting to IRC 09:00 to 11:00 Argentina or +3 GMT
for any help you ask
