	Bert is right!  You only need to do steps 1 and 2 below.

>	QuickGuides is a flap in Etoys that contains help on many
>topics.  There are 54 Guides, and they were written by Kathleen
>	We have recently changed how the Index Guide works.  It is
>the first guide to show in the flap, and allows you to get to all the
>other Guides.
>	You get Guides flap by clicking on the  [?]  icon that is
>left-most in the gray bar across the top of the screen.
>	You may get an error window when opening guides.  This email
>tells you how to get the latest guides and avoid the error.
>If you get Etoys from the current
>then QuickGuides will work fine.  You can stop reading here.
>If you have a development image that you are working in, here is how
>to upgrade it.
>1) Fetch updates in your image.
>2) Mount a folder using webDav:
>On a Mac:   the Go menu, Connect to server...
>On Windows:  Go to My Network Places, and click on Add Network Place
>at the top  of the left sidebar
>On Linux:  (I'm sure you already know how to mount a directory on a server!)
>When the folder show up, drag the entire QuickGuides folder to the
>place where you keep your OLPC-Squeak.image.

(You are ready to start etoys.  Step 3 is not necessary.)

>Now you can start etoys and click on the [?] help icon.
