I want to cross post this to PWS list as well (without helpint he 
title this time)

I have been trying to set up a Squeak 2.2 swiki, and the crucial 
problem for me is in the phrase:

 then modify the path

because I can't find the rules which explain whhow to describe my 
path. One example says

^ 'Home Plate:ETSqueak1.31b:Server:'

My location is c:\squeak_2.2\server in PC terms but everything I 
tried gave an error message.

Please will someone supply step by step instructions which do not 
assume knowledge of Squeak.  I will willingly offer to test them out 
and offer feedback.

I teach numerical methods and process control theory to undergraduate 
students.  I know how tricky it is with jargon I know, I forget I 
didn't know it!
