Create caption without float AND without caption-package?

i have this:

\begin{minipage}[b]{0.35\linewidth}  

Here is the text

\end{minipage}

\hfill
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.55\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.8]{imag9}
\caption{TEXT}
\label{fig3.5}
\end{minipage}

When i try to add \caption and \label (as in the figure) it shows me errors but the pdf i am taking is ok! Is there another way to do that?

The command caption works only inside float environments. If you want to use a caption outside float you need the command captionof –  Marco Daniel Jun 6 '12 at 13:13
    
If i use \captionof it shows me error "undefined control sequence \captionof". –  George Jun 6 '12 at 13:21
    
See the link -- you need the package caption or capt-of or a KOMA-class. –  Marco Daniel Jun 6 '12 at 13:22

To label pictures outside of a figure-environment, use the caption package with the macro captionof like this:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage[draft]{graphicx}
\begin{document}
  \begin{minipage}[b]{0.35\linewidth}\centering
    Here is the text
  \end{minipage}\hfill
  \begin{minipage}[b]{0.55\linewidth}\centering
    \includegraphics[width=5cm]{image}
    \captionof{figure}{A wonderful picture}
  \end{minipage}
\end{document}
