digitalmars.D - dfl installation problems

I apoligize if these are really stupid questions..
I downloaded dfl and am new to D and command line compilers.
I put the dfl.lib in the lib directory in my DMD installation.
I don't understand what they are saying here:

Quote:
Place the dfl directory in one of your import search paths. You may need to 
edit the DFLAGS in sc.ini (usually found at c:\dmd\bin\sc.ini) to include 
dfl's parent directory


Linker flags:
You will need to pass special flags to the linker. For a normal Windows 
application, use:
-L/exet:nt/su:windows:4.0
To include the console window in your application, use this instead:
-L/exet:nt/su:console:4.0
If you fail to pass one of those flags to DMD, parts of DFL will fail to 
function properly!


I opened the sc.ini and saw the DFLAGS entry but didn't understand what to 
put in there. Whenever i try to compile hello.d i get:

C:\D\ext\examples>dmd helloworld.d dfl.lib -L/exet:nt/su:windows:4.0
Error: Error reading file 'object.d'


C:\D\ext\examples>dmd helloworld.d dfl.lib -L/exet:nt/su:windows:4.0
Error: Error reading file 'object.d'


C:\D\ext\examples>dmd helloworld.d
Error: Error reading file 'object.d'


C:\D\ext\examples>dmd helloworld.d
Error: Error reading file 'dfl\all.d'


In the last two examples i was messing with things in the sc.ini file, 
trying different ways to try the instructions... Thanks for any help.

DFL 0.8 has a program DFL.exe that will do this automatically for you :).
