There is a comet package in the official seaside squeaksource repository.
There are some comet applications examples ...

To launch the web server, instead of WAKom (for normal web server)
you'll have to lauch WAListener...Something like:
WAListener startOn: 8888.
Then browse ot localhost:8888...

Do you already have an image ? if no, I suggest you take a squeak web
one made by Damien - Thr last betais here:

I don't remember if comet is loaded, but if no, open monticello, then
the seaside repository and you should find comet.
