I don''t know of any really good online DirectX tutorials, but I haven''t really looked. There may even been some here on gamedev.net. In any case, try looking in the DirectX help that comes with the SDK. There are some tutorials under DirectDraw that are a pretty good starting place.

If you don''t know what version you have, I would suggest getting ahold of the newest version (7 at the moment, I believe). It might be available for download at microsoft.com/directx.

Also, if you''re willing to spend a little money, "Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus" by Andre LaMothe is a VERY good book. You can order it from amazon.com.

I hope that helps you out.
