3.10 vms had hard-coded paths that made it difficult for non-root users to try 
out squeak. The newer versions (3.11+) use a script squeak to detect and 
launch from any directory. i.e. if you unzip the tar.gz into $HOME/squeak/
   $HOME/squeak/Squeak-4*/bin/squeak <imagefile>

will do the right magic env settings and command line parameters to launch 
squeak. The bin/squeak.sh is for interactive launches. It throws up a native 
file selection dialog so you can choose the image path.

You can use /usr/local/bin/squeak to launch 3.10 and 
$HOME/squeak/Squeak-4.0*/bin/squeak to try out newer version.
