That's a bad name because it is also the name of one of the installation floppy disks.

You should name your boot partition System3.2 or WB3.2 or Workbench32 or so. But not Workbench3.2.

Yes: Surfaces, BlocksPerTrack and HighCyl

It should be possible to run a Rexx script from the def icon. The script can then call Multiview with specific options. I think there is even an example included with OS 3.9.

I thought that I own all AF releases since 4.0, but apparently I skipped 2005. In 6.0 there is indeed only the WB disk for 3.1. In 2006 there are all six disks.
