Default Help with a game

Okay, id Software make some of my favourite games (Quake and Doom), so today I was looking on their website for new releases etc. when I came across downloadable source code.

Feeling brave, I downloaded Quake with the intention of seeing what sort of file structure was used (source, resource and headers - it's in C, by the way) and seeing how the whole thing would compile.

I've seen the file structure, but I haven't a clue how to compile it. The file is found at the bottom of this page (http://www.idsoftware.com/business/techdownloads/) and needs to be unzipped. If someone could take a look and help me figure out how to do it, I'd e really grrateful.

Thanks

well if you are using windows and visual studio I suggest you use the workspace and project files.
winquake.dsw and winquake.dsp

if you are using Linux then just use the make files Makefile.linuxi386

there is even a solaris make file if you like Unix...

I've not got visual studio. I use Bloodshed Dev C++, but I can get vs if I need to. Thanks. I'll see if I can do it tonight.
