SDL is pretty good from what I have heard but for future reference, check out "Programming Role Playing Games with DirectX 8.0" by Jim Adams. Very good for just starting out, and geared for people who have done the switch from C to C++ (there''s a section introducing classes and other stuff).

Search it on Amazon. Even includes a sample game using everything described in the book, and some demos from the chapters (multiplayer clients, etc).
