If there is no memory mapped at a fundamental address like  
sqMemoryBase that implies to me that some very serious has failed,  
and I think it must surely have failed right at the beginning of  
starting Squeak. You didn't mention anything about whether the system  
started up or not, what you were doing, or anything that might help us.

sqMemoryBase is typically set right at the beginning of the VM  
startup, by allocating the memory for the image so if for some  
strange reason that fails you could be in trouble. It's hard to  
imagine how the allocate could fail and not be detected though.
