About windows 98 programming you just need to know the minimum: how to create a simple window, you need one for launching Directdraw.
And that''s all if you only want to make 2D games , play with directsound and use Directinput.
Of course using Direct3D is another ballgame that suppose some knowlwdge of vectors, matrix etc...
A good book doesn''t hurt too:
The simplest one is Windows games programming for dummies , the other one is tricks of windows games programming gurus and is more detailed. Both are from Andre Lamothe and should give you a good start.
I hope this helps
