    Yea it's difficult. You can either use a graphics library like opengl, allegro, directx, sdl etc, or you can access the hardware directly(no idea how to do this). If you are new to C, take the time to learn the language very well before diving into graphics and specializing in a particular area. Goodluck.

    Completely depends on what you want to do. For illustration, I wrote a MineSweeper clone using graphics.h on a Borland compiler. This is fairly simple.

    If you want to deal with highr level graphics like Doom, yes you'll need something else and it is much harder.

    Look at my answer in this thread and simply swap the word "color" for "graphics".
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    That's what it's there for, so yes
