I got the default 4.1 image and added the metacello repository to
monticello per a youtube video. Then I ran ConfigurationOfSeaside30
load.  I did this last night.

Thank you, your suggestion worked perfectly!

I've been trying to understand the #( Dev ) reference in the statement
you provided. I assume it would be inappropriate to ask about
a Smalltalk question like that in this mailing list?  If so, can you
point me to a newsgroup/mailing list for Smalltalk that would be
familiar with squeak?

I really appreciate all your help and your time!

Best Regards,
