    dev & allegro compile errors

    i just got allegro installed with Dev C++, followed every step from
    http://www.allegro.cc/go.php?_url=ht...urceforge.net&, including the final step which is to check if it is working correctly, and it did.
    But now im trying to compile the examples and i get a mass of compiler messages(near 20) like this:

    undefined reference to `install_allegro.
    i know this means that i prolly did something wrong in the install but could it be that allegro is double fouldered?
    (its in C:\Dev-Cpp\allegro\allegro)
    btw i have already searched the forums for posts like this and didnt find any

    neither of those are there, using version 4.....

    --EDIT--
    i can get it to work under project mode so i suppose it doesnt matter i just want to see if i can create a single script without having a project,
