  First, evaluate:

	ReleaseBuilderSqueakland new prepareReleaseImageForOLPC

This clears up bunch of stuff.  The resulting image would be a good
one is a "plain" plugin image
(http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/etoys-2.1-1513.zip and older ones are made
in this way, basically).

  Then, place "Welcome", "DemonCastle1", "Gallery" and "Launcher"
projects in the same directory as .image and evaluate:

	ReleaseBuilderSqueakland new buildInitialScreenForOLPC2

(We can certainly rename this method to #buildInitialScreenForOLPC.)

  We will reduce the number of pre-loaded projects soon, but this is
the way for now.

  Place the car wherever you like, save the image and rename the
.image to etoys.image and make sure the screen size is 1200x900.

  Because of this I usually do the evaluation of
#buildInitialScreenForOLPC2 on actual XO (on a USB memory) and then
copy the .image to /usr/share/etoys, and make sure it works on XO.
