In the readme file it states that you need to install the Civil Object Enabler for AutoCAD to display Civil 3D objects. 2 questions: is this only for custom civil 3d objects? and where is this OE located? I can't find it on adsk's website. Thanks.
Yes, the Object Enabler is only required to display custom Civil 3D objects - like pipes, structures, surfaces, C3D labels, etc. You don't need it to display plain AutoCAD entities.
Unfortunately, the Civil 2011 Object Enabler is not yet available... it should be shortly.
In the meantime other options are described in the ReadMe:
1. Turn on PROXYGRAPHICS, or
2. From Civil 3D use Export to AutoCAD to create a separate file to bring into SSA.
Once the OE is available you shouldn't have to do either of these.
I hope that helps.

SSA looks for Civil 3D 2011 to be installed, but you don't necessarily need
to use Civil 3D 2011 to use SSA. stm and LandXML should be fine going back
and forth to 2010 as far as I know. Charlie? Matt?
SSA will check to see if AutoCAD Civil 3d 2011 or Map 3d 2011 are
installed when SSA launched.
The source of your data is up to you and is not dependent on 2011
products. (ie, ESRI shape files or LandXML files can be loaded)
