You need to edit the plst resource in your standalone.  Apple supplies 
tools to do that in there developer kit.  You can get this for free by 
downloading it.  The plst resource is an xml file.  You could also edit 
it by hand with a good text editor like bbedit.  Then copy it and paste 
it using resedit on the classic side of things.
