Don't we all. :D

Learn C/C++ properly, then choose a graphics library. Already mentioned in this topic, SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) is suitable for beginners as a first graphics library.

Read all these isometric game atricles . A lot are out of date but filled with usefull info. Also most of the articles at gamedev are usefull although I doubt he's gonna be needing any per-vertex shader articles:P.

Taylor, I think your signature is too profound for my understanding.

I thought by "game" he meant "way with women", not a literal game. Makes sense that way, sorta. I was trying to relate crashing to being shot down and... whatever. It's a very very rare case that anything in user mode crashes the whole computer. You would need to have either faulty hardware or find a bug in a driver.
