There's your problem.  You almost certainly don't want to start RHIDE
in either of those two ways.  Instead, open a command line shell, 'cd'
to the place you actually want your project to be in, and *then* run
'rhide projectname'.  Make that place one devoid of blanks in the
path, to be on the sane and safe side of things.

I'm reasonably sure that this Path is not what the instructions told
you to make it.  If at all possible, you should have c:\djgpp\bin
*first* on the path, not last.

A further note of caution: this is the Win32 / cmd.exe view of the
environment (detectable by the variable names being lower-case).  You
want to look at the *DOS* view instead.  You may have to explicitly
run '' to get a look at that.  It should be equivalent, but
it never hurts to be sure.

Huh?  Whatever made you think that?
