Thanks for your help.  One last question. (for this set ;)
I've moved my app to its own  category, created a class called 
'Batteries' with a class method #canBeRoot.  Registered it with the 
config app.  I can open the app in a browser ( firefox ).  I'm using the 
following to start Commanche :

seaside := WAKom default.

    ma := ModuleAssembly core.

    ma serverRoot: FileDirectory default fullName.

    ma alias: '/seaside' to: [ma addPlug: [:request | seaside  

        process: request]].

    ma documentRoot: FileDirectory default fullName.

    ma directoryIndex: 'index.html index.htm'.

    ma serveFiles.

    (HttpService startOn: 80 named: 'httpd') plug: ma rootModule

WAKom stop
Should all my classes be prefixed with 'WA'?  Should I create my own 
prefix?  or Should they be prefixed at all?
