In theory it should just work after installing Etoys. Also in theory, theory and practice are the same.

The plugin should be in /usr/lib/squeak/<version>, called npsqueak.so. There should be a script "npsqueakregister" in /usr/lib/squeak. That script should have been run by the installer. It should have placed a symlink to npsqueak.so in the browser's plugins directory. The plugin should be listed in Firefox's "about:plugins" (possibly after restarting the browser).
Would be interesting to know which of these steps failed.
If you can't make it work, there is an unofficial way of making Etoys-To-Go work as a plugin. For that, download Etoys-To-Go from http://squeakland.org/ , unzip in your home directory, and run the Contents/Linux-i686/npetoysregister script.
