tapping into finder events

I followed the link to fslogger you provided.  Cool!  I think this is  
what I need... sort of... maybe.  But how do I proceed from here?  I  
don't even know what to do with the system file that I downloaded  
from the site. What is it?  Where does it go?  How do I get Rev or  
SuperCard to tap into the events it catches and logs?  I've never  
received (or was not aware if I did) an event from an app external to  
my xTalk stack or project.  What would that look like?  I know that  
AppleScript can send events to xTalk objects... how can I get  
fslogger to send AppleEvent messages to my stacks or projects?

Very obviously confused and wanting to learn.
