i tryed that i got a link
https://sites.google.com/site/ceniza6662/ceniza'swebsite-mingw
but i am still not getting it.
These are the Steps shown the website
Set MINGDIR to C:\MinGW
Set UNIX_TOOLS to C:\unxutils\usr\local\wbin
Modify your PATH variable and add at the beginning of it C:\MinGW\bin;C:\unxutils\usr\local\wbin; (so, if your current PATH was PATH=C:\windows;C:\windows\command change it to PATH=C:\MinGW\bin;C:\unxutils\usr\local\wbin;C:\windows;C:\windows\command).

Since MinGW 2.0 the make command has been renamed to mingw32-make.exe. It's recommended to rename it to make.exe or make a copy of it with that name. For renaming it, just open Windows Explorer, go to the folder C:\MinGW\bin, right click on mingw32-make and select rename. Change the name to make and press enter (if your Windows Explorer shows extensions don't forget to add it back).
To compile Allegro you will need some DirectX headers that can be downloaded here. Decompress it in C:\MinGW (overwrite files if asked).
Open a console window (MS-DOS window) and type the following commands (remember to press enter at the end of each command):c:
cd \mingw\allegro
fix mingw32
make
make install


---End--------

so when i type fix mingw32 i get an error
'fix mingw32' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

That is because your paths aren't set up correctly.
