The first starting example is right under your nose Check your SDK. It has how to do vertex shading for each basic light source.

GameDev has a series of articles that introduce shader programming in DX8.1. The main ideas are still valid even if you''re using DX9.

Also, ATI has a number of sample programs that use shaders (both assembly and HLSL) to do different things. Some are very simple and others are more complicated. Take a look at them for more info.

The first chapter of the book "Shader X2 Introductions & Tutorials with DirectX 9" is freely available on the net:
