What part don''t you understand? Depth buffers?

A depth buffer is what determines if vertices are drawn infront, behind, or in the middle of other vertices when they are rendered. IIRC, it consists of floats that tell the current depth of the pixel. If a vertex has a lower value than the current pixel (it''s closer) it overdraws it. If it has a higher value (it''s behind) it isn''t drawn. For a better explanation, look up "Depth Buffers" in the SDK docs.
