I don''t have VC 6 in front of me, so I a going by memory...

In the project settings (right click on the project in the workspace window and choose "settings"), there is a "linker" tab. Somewhere on that tab is something like "additional libraries". Type in the names of the libraries there. For D3D, I include d3d9.lib d3dx9.lib and dxerr9.lib

i prefer doing this at the top of one of my files in the project

#comment (lib, "d3d9.lib")

note that will only work for msvc but if that is the compiler/ide you use then it will work fine. i like doing it that way so that when i start a new project with those same files i dont have to go through the whole thing that the above poster wrote down.
