Thanks for the tip! I am reading the NetBSD manual now. I had already
checked out FreeBSD (after verifying that Ian had Squeak binaries for
that) but it seemed to have all the negative features of the main Linux
distributions that I was trying to avoid.

In the case of my web server I just need something that will work today,
but I have some older machines around that I want to play with and am
not in a hurry so I can check out far less polished alternatives. I am
particularly interested in trying to run Squeak on top of the Utah OSKit
(http://www.cs.utah.edu/flux/oskit/). There is already a "Scheme
machine" this way.

A more conventional live CD Squeak might be easier to make starting from
Knoppix or some variation of it.
