I assume you´re using W95, W98 or Me. Windows Explorer won´t let you
create it, but you can do it from COMMAND.COM (from the Start menu chose
Run, then type COMMAND and press ENTER). You´ll be in COMMAND.COM, then
cd \ (and press ENTER)
md .emacs.d (and ENTER)
exit (and ENTER)
and you´ll have the directory. (BTW, sorry if I´m being very basic here,
I don´t know how familiar you are with Windows and COMMAND.COM).

There are ways to make Emacs to not ding on error, if you so desire.
