    Here is good sight. It goes over api functions to load a bitmap and move it around the screen.

    Hey SDL is perfect for making 2d games, esp ones that use BMPs. I tried making a pong game in SDL, I didn't get very far, but I was able to create a ball that bounces around the screen.

    cone3d.gamedev.net

    go to that site to see tutorials and information on SDL.
