I'm not too sure about Borland C/C++ 5.0, but if you are going to buy
things, why not consider buying something like:
1. A decent compiler independent C book like "The C Programming
2. A 2GB hard drive;  (So that you can download the whole DJGPP archive
and install most of the tools and the SOURCES.)
