If MzScheme works fine, then it was able to find the collections.  The
problem is probably in the plt preferences being corrupt somehow.  (I
think that there was a bug report recently about this problem.)  You
can try to remove the preferences (in ~/.plt-scheme/plt-prefs.ss)
before you start DrScheme.
