Windows 3.1 shortcut in TownsOS

So my Fresh ET came with a drive that was setup with DOS/TownsOS on a MS-DOS EXT partition and Windows 3.1 installed on another MS-DOS EXT.  The cool part was there were icons in TownsOS and Windows 3.1 that allowed you to flip back and forth between them.  I have been trying to replicate the setup from scratch and can't seem to figure out how to generate the icons that switch between them.  I figured it must be using the TownsOS boot CD and selecting the Windows 3.1 option at the beginning, but if I jump through the hoops to allow the TownsOS install CD to see MS-DOS EXT partitions (bootstrap it with an extended DOS 6.2 boot disk) the Windows 3.1 option is grayed out in the installer.  I am open to any suggestions any one has.  Thanks!


I reverse engineered it.  It was basically a bunch of batch scripts that get run from TOS and Windows.
