I don't use Dink HD, but I'm pretty sure that what I'm about to tell you works for any version of Dink.

If you are writing your own Dink Module (named QUESTDAY) then you need to put it into the "STORY" directory under the "QUESTDAY" directory. If you want the DinkC file to be readable from any Dink module on that system, then the DinkC file goes into the "STORY" directory under the "DINK" directory.

Let us know if that was not enough to get you started.
