Based on what you've mentioned, I suspect you may have unzipped
everything into the wrong directories.   Each of the zip files have
their own directory structure, and have a common root.

that is, when unzip djdev203.zip, unzip it into C:\DJGPP, likewise
with ALL of the files.   Do not unzip them into different root
directories like you've been doing, as each of these packages shares a
common directory structure.   

Also, I generally consider the use of fake emails to be rather rude.
If you can't take responsibility for what you post, DON'T POST!!!
