That djdev203 subdirectory is already a sign of trouble: I'm guessing
that you used WinZip to unzip the files. WinZip has a ``feature''
whereby each of the *.zip files is unzipped into its own
subdirectory; this totally disrupts the directory structure expected
by the DJGPP programs.
I suggest to remove the entire DJGPP directory, then download the
program unzip32.exe from the same place where you found DJGPP, and
then unzip the *.zip files again using unzip32.exe. To unzip with
unzip32.exe, open a DOS box, change to the C:\DJGPP directory, and
then type commands like these:
etc., one command for each one of the *.zip files you've downloaded.

This is also wrong, this variable should point to C:\DJGPP\djgpp.env.

The fact that the swap space is reported as zero is normal on Windows XP
(and on all other members of the NT family of Windows). Don't worry

These are all signs of unzipping with WinZip. Don't use it.
