Did you mean System.Tool when you said System.Log? System.Tool is where I would put commands that I wanted to access regularly. System.Log is the viewer where system messages are displayed. 

Q1. Directories:

Experiment with the settings in the Oberon.Ini file which should be in the same directory as the main executable, Oberon.exe.

The [System] section includes the comments:

;You can specify additional directories that will be searched when looking
;for a file. The order in which the directories appear in the list is
;also used when searching for files.

Q2. Fonts:
The [Fontmap] section in the Oberon.ini file includes the comments:

;By mapping a Syntax10.Scn.Fnt to Arial12.Scn.Fnt you can enlarge
;the font to be used for display (not for printing!).

Q3. WiFi: 

I'm not aware of any WiFi capability.
