    First you must get the sdk if you don't have it already from msdn.

    Cheak out www.sunlightd.com for a dx tutorial.

    BTW what compiler do you use? Since if you use borland or dev you need to get the proper lib files.

    Cool resources

    For good tutorials :
    www.drunkenhyena.com : This has good tutorials
    nexe.gamedev.net : Some samples, not bad, but not that good.

    Also, keep an eye on www.gamedev.net DirectX forum. You'll mostly find people to answer your questions there.
