Sorry, I understand now (missed a "not" in your original post).  I would
have thought it should be possible to run the i386 version of squeak on the
amd64 server.  Below is a general article here on how this is done, but at
first glance I can't find any specific articles on squeak (if you figure it
out, it would be great to have one in the edubuntu wiki!!).

At the minute, the thin client "local apps" stuff is still only in
development so you might be able to get it working using gutsy, but I get
the impression it's not really stabilised and ready for prime time yet.
