Randy you can double click the image file and that should run the
most current virtual machine you have. You can do get Info on the
etoys.image in the Finder and examine and alter the Open with: tab to
see which VM the *.image file is going to use. If you have multiple
etoy folders, installs, Squeak VMs, and OLPC VMs/images it can be a
bit confusing about which VM will be used. Sometimes the Finder has
it's own ideas, although it should be using the "latest" application
that understands how to open the document.
Technically think of the VM as the macintosh application, and the
image file as the Document.
I noticed the SqueakLand.app VM on the OLPC-Etoys070726.zip
contains internally a Squeakland.image which is used by default if
you double click on the SqueakLand.app. You could replace that
Squeakland.image with another image if needbe.
Mind I suspect the Squeakland.app in the OLPC-Etoys070726.zip should
not contain the Squeakland.image since I think it's replaced by the
etoys.image? Er this makes the zip file 2x as large since there are
two images in the zip file.
If you desire a command line equivalent there are a number of
choices. The easiest is to use the 'open' command
open -a Squeakland.app etoys.image
which says open the application Squeakland.app with the document
