    Simple question. Help will be appreciated.

    I am running under windows XP and using Dev-C++. Since XP is a strictly windows OS I cannot call BIOS anymore. I am building a program where I need to control the cursors X and Y position on the screen. By the way I am programming in dos and in the default mode 0x02 (text). On my old windows 98 computer I had no problem making a function to call BIOS, then just enter my position.. position(x,y) and so on. But since I cannot call BIOS anymore, what can I do to control the cursors X and Y position? Is there anything I can do? Or do I just have to program in windows Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
