    I believe you can order it from Microsoft....

    But if you don't want to do that, I also believe that there are some books that include it on the companion disc. I cannot tell you exactly which ones have the DX8 SDK on them, but I know that 3D Game Programming in C++ (which is all about D3D) has DX7 with it... so, just look around in a bookstore.... or order it

    if you get it ordered they charge you a bit. I would wait until DX9 comes out (sometime late summer / early fall of this year), then order that.
