You don't need NMAKE (sorry Jeremy!).

Just open makefile as a "makefile" (ie: override the "Auto" and select
"makefile" in the drop-down box on the "open file" screen).  Select
"build" from the compile menu, and follow the prompts.  When it asks for
a project name, overwrite the default with "Circle".

Et voila....after possibly one warning (which is easily overcome by
editing comm.c), you should get a fully compiled Circle.exe.

If you get any other errors, check that "c:\msdev\bin\vcvars32" exists
in your Autoexec.bat.  This file sets up your environment variables
which are necessary.
