Hi everybody

A solution for the question:

> I want my

> But no where can I find a way to browse to them.

Is to make a text file with the desired directory using this template and
put it in the directoy knownServers.

For windows it is :

C:\Program Files\Squeak\Plugin\prefs\knownServers

For Mac os 9 you have to look for
 system/preference/squeak  and seardch from there, I don't remamber exactly
where it is.

For other system you have to search where squeak is installed.

name:	        7emesinfo
directory:	g:\cours\7emes info
type:	        file

This one is for windows, the path is different acording to your system.

The name will appear in the blue window  when you are loading or saving

>From this directory you can browse the chlidren directories if any.

This way you can choose where your students have to save there projects.

Best regards

I must confess that setting up Squeak for a classroom is still somewhat 
tricky and a few people are working on getting better solutions to work.

Please send some more information about your setup offline (Are you 
using Windows, Mac OS 9 /X, how do your network folders appear to the 
kids (drive or volume name).

Please make sure to have the newest version of the plugin (just go to 
squeakland and point to "get updates").

After wondering why your are having such a hard time it occurred to me, 
that you simply forgot about the "click and hold" oin the navigation 
bar? When you clikc on the publish or find button, but hold the mouse 
button down then a menu will appear after a short moment. This menu has 
entries for e.g. publish as, find (more places) etc.

Even if this solves your problem, please still send the extra 
information so I can help you with finding a better setup.
