You need to change the javascript on your website - in particular the  
displaySqueaklet() function, which needs to check if it is running on  
an XO, and if so, simply redirect to the project itself rather than  
embedding it on the page. There is no Squeak browser plugin on the XO

The next Squeakland release will be able to read OLPC projects, but  
the current one can not.
