I am a little confused. There is no such thing as Mathematica 3.2.
There is Mathematica 2.2.x and Mathematica 3.0.x.
The fact that you are typing in a command to start mathematica suggests
you are not using a notebook interface. The command "math" does not
load a notebook interface anyway, but only the kernel. In that case,
mathematica will not display any graphs on your screen except certain
2-D graphs and then only with screen font characters-no true graphics.
To view the results of a graph, you will need to do something like the
This will write a bitmap file to your hard drive in the default
directory. You will then need to use some kind of program that can view
graphics like most word processors(Word, Wordperfect) or a paint program
like CorelDraw, PaintShop Pro etc. The available graphics options
depend on which version of Mathematica you are using. You are severely
limited with Mma 2.2.
