  I'm not too totally sure about some things you said, but I'll give it a
shot...embedded structs are easy.  To use a struct within another, make sure
you declare the first one before the second one.  To use your example (I
think) or something like it...

     struct targettype { int vars };
     struct shiptype { int var;  struct targettype blah[5] };

  To seed the random number generator, just do this:

          srand((unsigned int)(time(NULL)));
  (though I've been known to get the simplest things wrong from memory =)
