Using MIT/GNU Scheme

I have downloaded the MIT/GNU Scheme implementation of LISP in order to understand Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs . However, I am a bit confused about what I am dealing with when I launch the program. When the program is launched, I get two windows: the "MIT/GNU Scheme" window, and the "Edwin: scheme" window.

What are these two windows used for? Is the "MIT/GNU Scheme" one some sort of command-line interpreter? While the other is where code can be written and saved?

Further questions: If the MIT/GNU Scheme is a command-line interpreter, how can I get the "1 ]=>" prompt to show. And if the other is where I write programs, how do I test and save the programs?

This is not the correct community for the MIT/GNU. You need to go here:
