DireectDraw

Ok,
After deciding to put Direct3D off for a while, I would like to look into DirectDraw (from the little knowlege i know of it, it's 2D - right? And much easier to deal with then Direct3D?).  

Im using VC++ and have DirectX 9 SDK installed.  Would this give me DirectDraw capabilities?

Im just looking at creating a simple RPG game (for fun) with an "above" view-point.  So all I'll really need to do is display some images (Hero, monsters, items ect, like the original Zelda) and move these images as need (keyboard/Moue input, AI, ect..)

So my question is, would Direct3D be a good route to go? Anyone know where I can get some good tutorials on DirectDraw? There aren't too many books in the stores for it either.  Any help is Greatly Appriciated!
