i had "sidewinder joystick" drivers installed. when I uninstalled them I lost my "joystick support" icon in control
panels. So now I can't use my gravis gamepad. When I went to the gravis site they said to just use the "joystick support" option in control panels -- exactly the thing that I don't have. I also need cplang32.dll and joy.cpl, as my computer told me those files are missing.

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/directx and download the (End User) version of directX 5.  This comes with its own brand-spanking new joystick icon and those two files that you mentioned.
