You should really turn to the OLPC support forums - this is not an  
Etoys problem:


There are many problems with the XOs and even more solutions, but  
this is not the place to discuss them.

The image Yoshiki sent around is *not* as useful if you want to  
develop for OLPC. It is tuned to work nicely in non-XO systems, and  
will evolve into the next Squeakland version. You should at least  
work with the OLPC etoys.image, and ideally inside Sugar. It really  
can't be that hard to get the XO working - maybe you need to give it  
to a student ;)
