Welcome to the REBOL list.
I can't help with the two Amiga specific questions (#1 and #3).
Ralph's book, "REBOL for Dummies" is a great way to hit the ground running
with REBOL. Unfortunately Network Solutions changed their whois interface
soon after the book was released (if I recall correctly). I do not recall
if they have a URL that works with the whois query. However, you will have
more luck with the following:
print read whois://[abooks--com--internic--net]/cgi/whois
Hope that helps.
