You need Borland's C++Builder at least version 5.  I think we should 
compile on the free/almost-free personal edition, but I use the 
profesional edition.  You DON'T need the enterprise edition.  Can anyone 
confirm that the personal version does indeed work?  I think it is like 
$69 bucks from Borland, and from your school bookstore it's either free 
or like $30 bucks.

We'd so LOVE the help!!!
