    *sigh*

    If you are new at programming, you shouldn't even think of making a (graphical) game. Start with more basic programming and move on until you (eventually) reach the level when you can make your own game.
    It's hard work, but definitely worth it

    hmmm

    hmmm, I didn't mean to sound pessimistic. Check out brackeen.com for some tutorials on mode 13 (probably the simpliest graphics mode that exists ).

    You should also check the collision detection algorithm thread if you are going to program a pong game.

    Check www.programmersheaven.com for source relating to collision detection, graphics, etc. The other site mentioned by Magos is very good for beginning VGA programming.
