Hi all,
I am expecting a visit from a Mac user and try to prepare for the 
installation of Squeak on his machine. The task proves too hard for my 
limited brain.

I go to http://www.squeak.org/Download/

First I try to download latest release for Mac. I get a Zip file with 
two directories:

A subdirectory of the first is a different Squeak3.10.2-7179-basic. I 
find the other subdirectories utterly confusing.

Is this supposed to be the simplest entry into Squeak for a Mac user? 
Surely a README file would be useful here.

The Download page also has links into the individual files. I now have 
to choose between MacOSX (Universal) and MacOS 7.5.5 to 9.2. A Mac user 
would know what to choose here. I hope the choice isn't the latter, 
because MacOS 7.5.5 to 9.2 is a dead link. MacOSX (Universal) lead to 
the above mentioned two subdirectories, but with different contents?

May be all this is perfectly clear to a Mac user. I'll find out when my 
friend gets here.
