Check out the DirectX SDK, it contains some nice samples if you are a novice programmer. If you are not, then I suggest you get to learn C/C++ first and maybe buy a nice book. I really liked Windows Game Programming for Dummies, but its a long time ago I read that.

You might want to check out sites like www.flipcode.com and www.gamedev.net too for links to tutorial sites about DirectX. Those sites will help you much more and faster then we can ever do if you ask your questions here... If you still have problems you might want to consider posting on the lionhead messageboards, www.lionhead.co.uk ... A lot of nice people there too and some people there who really know DirectX *cough* Tony *cough*...
