I'm not sure this is the right SUnit version, but you'll see if it works

Print it: WebClientServerTest buildSuite run
or load SUnitGUI (though I guess it won't be compatible with your image).

I think it is. Note that you'll probably face several compatibility 
problems. You'll find fixes for most of them in the WebClient-Pharo 
package on squeaksource.com.
