From the SDK,
"DirectX Graphics combines the Microsoft DirectDraw® and Microsoft Direct3D® components of previous DirectX versions into a single application programming interface (API) that you can use for all graphics programming. The component includes the Direct3DX utility library that simplifies many graphics programming tasks. "

This means there's no new DirectDraw for DX8, so if you just want DirectDraw you have to use the DX7 interface.

You can use DirectX Graphics for hardware accelerated 3D, which you can also set up to draw 2D stuff using textures and polygons.

There's an article on that very subject here on GD.net.
