Subject: Can't compile in certain paths

	I'm wondering if anyone can provide me with a solution to my problem.
I'm using djgpp (1.11maint4) and installed it in a directory d:\gcc.  I can
compile the test programs that are in d:\gcc\samples\hello, or any other 
program in the \gcc\samples directory, for that matter, but I can't compile a
program in a directory outside of \gcc.  (\gcc\bin is in my autoexec.bat path.)
Now, if I copy a file into the \gcc\samples directory (or \gcc\samples\hello or
anything like that), I can compile just fine.  But if I create a directory like
d:\cprogs and try to compile from there, I get a Turbo C++ message and an errorAny suggestions on how to solve this problem?
	Also, I'm trying to re-compile some of my programs that I wrote in 
Turbo C, and I'm having a little difficulty because some of Turbo C's include
files don't exactly coincide with GCC's.  For instance, sound() and gotoxy(),
found in dos.h and conio.h, respectively, in Turbo C, are entirely absent from
GCC.  Is there a workaround for this, as I cannot seem to locate any function
in the GCC header files for producing a tone?
	Thank you very much for your assistance.
