    Uregistered, I do not know much about Windows XP.

    But in Windows 98 there when entering the Start-menu you can go to a menu called Run. There type "command" and you're on the DOS prompt.

    But you also can use Windows Explorer to find the executable and run it.

    KEN, don't forget that many, if not all, C programming courses/books don't do anything with windows and that kind of things. So most first programs are "DOS" programs.

    Oh, well it's different if he means how to get into the console...

    go to start->run, and type "cmd" then do what I told you in my last post...
