    is dev-c an acceptable alternative to djgpp?

    ^^^

    I'm going to be compiling my own OS. So that's why i was using djgpp...but i'm having too much of a pain installing the mother. I noticed that mingW was also a port of gcc...and since dev-c uses the mingW compiler, i thought it would be an acceptable substitute. Is this correct?

    I've got DJGPP installed here... did you use the Zip Picker when you downloaded it? http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/zip-picker.html
    After that, you can create an install.bat file and put what the website tells you into it:
    Code:
    unzip32 d:\tmp\djdev203.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\faq230b.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\rhide15b.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\bnu213b.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\gcc322b.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\gdb53b.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\mak3791b.zip
    unzip32 d:\tmp\txi42b.zip
    After that, set your PATH and DJGPP variables as per the website.
