This worked thanks!

This did not work for me. I did:
	- In the same directory as etoys.image 
(/home/mzimmermann/dev/smalltalk/squeak/OLPC), I put the ExampleEtoys 
directory and contents.
	- In the same directory as etoys.image, I created file 
prefs/knownServers/examples.dir looking as this:
name: Example Etoys
type: file
directory: /home/mzimmermann/dev/smalltalk/squeak/OLPC/ExampleEtoys

But when I start Squeak and click on "All" I get a "Load a Project" window 
which only has "MySqueak" directory and "Squeaklets" under it.

Is it possible that this "prefs" file is loaded by VM, and me having a regular 
Linux VM the preferences are not read?

Please ignore this if it is not obvious, I do not want to take everyone's 

Thanks Milan

PS: I wanted to run the command suggested by Bert, but did not find 
Workspace :(
