The Squeak 4.5 all-in-one provides Cog VMs.
The usual range of VMs is provided on squeakvm.org, including pointers
to the Cog VMs used in the all-in-one.
You are right, the squeak.org website should have some sort of explanation
of how to find the traditional image + VM installation. The all-in-one is
a very convenient way to provide a download for new users, but I do not
actually use it myself and I suspect that I am not alone in that regard.
