Subject: How to create a set of random integers for hashing?

Since ages I use the following formula for creating a set of random
integers for hashing at program start:

#define LENGTH 64*12

int random [LENGTH];

int a,b,c,d,x;

srand(9);                    // initialize prime number

for (x=0; x<LENGTGH; x++)
 { a=rand(); b=rand(); if (b & 1) a=a | 0x8000;
   c=rand(); d=rand(); if (d & 1) c=c | 0x8000;

I wonder how good such a system is and how others do it.
