You want to check out the paper by Deutsch and Schiffman in POPL 82
or POPL 83. It describes the main ideas behind ParcPlace Smalltalk's
implementation. Also, the papers by Dave Ungar et. al. in recent
OOPSLA's and SIGPLAN summer conferences show how Smalltalk *could*
be implemented, even though it isn't.
There is little difference between how Smalltalk is implemented
on a Sun-3 or a Sun-4.
