In short: Forget about that. MinGW uses GCC as the compiler, and in turn GCC uses a library format that is not compatible with the DDK libs that MS provides. You'll be better of with VC++ Express, available for free at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=F3FBB04E-92C2-4701-B4BA-92E26E408569&displaylang=en ("Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions with SP1")
