Unless you have to use it for some reason (it's nearly 20 years old!!) go for Visual C++ Express Edition or Code::Blocks

If you're stuck with it, search in this forum or the C forum for directions on getting it to work (the C forum posts will be related to Turbo C but it's the same concerns). Example: http://www.daniweb.com/forums/post1281354.html#post1281354

Doesn't Borland have newer products like CodeGear RAD Studio and C++ Builder 2010, now from "embarcadero" at www.embarcadero.com. I think those allow you to take old VCL/CLX applications and port them to the newest library versions. Of course, these have a big price tag too! Visual C++ Express and Code::Blocks are free of course.

I used to love working with Borland products, far better than Microsoft solutions. I used to love being able to compile 40 kLOC projects in a less than 5 seconds with the Borland compiler instead of waiting half-an-hour for the Microsoft compiler to do the same job. Not to mention VCL and great code completion and other programming aids that are very productive in the Borland IDEs. So I understand that you want to stick with that, but don't try and compile stuff on IDE/compilers that are too outdated, it's not a good idea (there's a good reason why they crash or do weird things when you try).

Well, there are always ways on the internet to get things like that for free.. but it's not very legal... these are the things I call "extended student discounts" to make it morally acceptable.. but still, illegal.. so I can't recommend anything.
