Another option (and I may get shot for this one ;) is that I have seen some
Micro$oft Press books on beginning programming that include the visual c
v1.5 with it.  For the price of the book you get a compiler that at least
you dont have to understand too much about.  Not a greate compiler, and its
only 16bit (from a 1 bit company ;), but good for learning.  I dont know if
their books are good for learning from though.  They also have learning
editions of visual c++ v5 for less than $100.
