Oops!  Sorry about that last post.  Please disregard the last paragraph.
That was an error on my part.

    Also, I have gotten everything to work fine.  All I have to do is
'restart computer in Ms-Dos mode and everything builds fine except(!) when
using -Zwin32 with c++ programs in which case I get a weird error message
about missing stab strings not linked with rsxnt (something like that).
Other than that, all other programs compile fine.

    As to why it works this way and not in a dos box I don't know (could
protected vs. real mode have anything to do with this?)

    Anything, I'd like to thank everybody for their help.
