Just type:	mkdir /tmp

Or from dos:	mkdir c:\tmp

You need to tell the compiler where the files are.  Usually, you run
the compiler in the directory that the sources are in, and leave the
objects and executable there also, but you can specify full paths if
you want them elsewhere.  The compiler isn't a mind reader - if you
put the sources somewhere else it won't know about them.
