Subject [greenstone-users] how do you import an existing example collection to base a new collection on?

I have been reading documentation for hours now and I just can$B!G(Jt figure out how one gets an existing example collection into the GLI so that you can base a new collection on it. I would like to use the

$B!H(JA simple image collection

  1. In the Librarian Interface, start a new collection (File $B"*(J New...) called backdrop. Fill out the fields with appropriate information. For Base this collection on:, select the item Simple image collection (image-e) from the pull-down menu.

When you base a collection on an existing one, it inherits all the settings of the old one, including which metadata sets (if any) the collection uses.$B!I(J

But how do I get the $B!H(Jimage-e$B!I(J to appear in the pull-down menu?

I$B!G(Jm sure this is the proverbial $B!H(Jstupid question$B!I(J, but I just can$B!G(Jt figure it out.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
