computer and they said every time they used Sugar they started from scratch,
turned out it was the installation was the live-cd kind.
Instructions on http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Downloads#Apple_Mac_OS_X do say

rather than spread out all over the web. That is why we need to all help
make sure the sugarlabs website is designed well, kept up to date and easy
