        Sorry - I haven't access to a working windows 95 machine with a
compiler that will work with circle mud (Ie, too lazy to set it up).  On
the other hand, I do have a wealth of information about the dirent.h
header that was included.  I included it so I could use the scandir
function.  Its only used once, and it creates a simple structure filled
with all the directory data (in this case, the board directory).  All you
really need to do is find a windows function which will get the name of
all the files in a directory, and then if the name is a number (like 1024
or 1201) run the create_new_board() function with that number as an
argument.  You may want to use readdir() which i think is on your system,
and performs a similar function.
