    Compiling Quake

    I wasnt sure where to post this.
    I'm trying to compile winquake just for kicks. I'm using VC++6 which is the recommended compiler for it. All the .c files are compiling properly and are producing .obj files. But the .s files (which are assembly files) wont see to compile. I know I'm supposed to have MASM installed, which I have MASM32. Here is the error I'm getting.

    --------------------Configuration: winquake - Win32 Release--------------------
    Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 12.00.8168 for 80x86
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-1998. All rights reserved.
    The system cannot find the path specified.
    'ml' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    d_draw.obj - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)
    When I type 'ml' into a cmd console the ml.exe is found and works. The only thing I can think of is if MASM isnt installed properly or maybe VC++ isnt set up for my MASM installation properly. I am totally unfamiliar with MSVC++. If anybody can help it would be appreciated.
    Another thing is, the format of the .s files are quite strange. Like they are half c and half at&t style asm. I'll attach it just for reference.
