I'm not sure I understand the question. Seaside is a framework that is  
written in Smalltalk and has been ported from Squeak to a number of  
dialects of Smalltalk (including Cincom and GemStone). There is not a  
"server that comes natively with Seaside" in any obvious sense. Our  
intent with GLASS (GemStone, Linux, Apache, Seaside, & Smalltalk) is  
that you can write your Seaside application in any dialect of  
Smalltalk (with emphasis on Squeak) and port it easily to GemStone.  
Coming from Squeak is particularly easy since we support Monticello.

You can start in Squeak and port to GemStone, or you can go to http://seaside.gemstone.com/ 
  and download the things needed to start in GemStone. And yes, 4 GB  
is a lot of data.
