Here's a quick overview of DOS. If you already know what DOS is, then you dont need to read this frame.
I'm also assuming that you're prepared to let the computer compile while you do something else (i.e. watch TV, sleep). Therefore you probably won't want to do much with your computer. Let's face it, you can't do much anyway, because the compile tools eat up so much memory.
Now, we've got the tools set up, let's move on to the environment in which you can compile.
Important note, in bold and red, just incase you miss it:DO NOT RUN THIS IN DOS!!!!!!
I know the compile tools run in a DOS BOX, but they require the presence of WINDOWS in order to run!!
Now we've got that sorted out...
Extra bonus tip!!
If your computer is a dinosaur which is so old it takes days to compile a map, or you can't afford to leave your computer compiling, there is another way, brought to you by the VERC..

I'm assuming that your map's completed (or you're doing a public beta version). It's such a massive map that it's going to take ages to compile.
