A good idea; though I'd put the Obey file in Library.

This is the better way, though either method will work.

Yup: all my RISC OS machines have primary and (where there is one)
secondary drives named appropriately, which avoids confusion whether
over Access+ (ShareFS) or otherwise.  I have nine hard drives, including
the one on the RiscBook portable (named "RiscBook"!), and there is never
any chance of mistaking one for another, whether being accessed locally
or remotely.

This method has worked well here for several years, and is the one I
recommend where possible and sensible to adopt.
