I asked the question wrong maybe last time, so here we go again.  I know that  you need to link the DirectX lib's and inc's to Borland, but I don't remember how to do that.  Could anyone tell me how to do that.  I took awhile off from doing any projects in DirectX and know I don't remember how to even link the libraries.  Thanks for hte help.

You need to include ddraw.h and link your project with ddraw.lib

You must include ddraw.h file in source(.c or .cpp) file where you are using ddraw function, i.e. DirectDrawCreate etc. This is needed to compile sourec file. Then you need to add ddraw.lib to your project to successfully link your project
