These should all be simple code modifications, and if you don't know how
to do it, I am sure there is a patch somewhere.

Come on.. you can do that in a 3 line batch file..

goto startloop

You can add errorlevel case statements for whatever diabolical purposes
you need. ;)

Why would you make a project with .c and .h files in Visual BASIC?  It's a
easy-to-use language and all, but I don't think it compiles stuff for you
when it's in a different language.

I'm not.. they're great development tools.  You just gotta know what
you're doing. 

BTW - Linux is free, and you can use UMSDOS to share your already made
partition, albiet slower.
