Do you have the SDL header files at all? If not - you probably need to download the library before you can compile with it: http://www.libsdl.org/

Check whatever you had downloaded and see if there aren't some instructions about this

OK - that's good - it was just the library missing. Now about this one:
I suspect that this might be relevant: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/140597

Or considering that it is SDL, http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=335101 might hold an answer or two.
