This really should get added to the FAQ (not that anyone reads it anyway). It gets asked at least 3 times a day.

tarscher, go to http://www.google.com and do a search for "terrain rendering tutorial". You''ll find more than enough stuff to get your started. If you want to save yourself some time, and don''t mind spending a little money, there''s an excellent book called "Focus on 3d Terrain Programming" by Trent Polack. It primarily deals with OpenGL, but the concepts are the same for Direct3D.
