need help getting started!

I hope I"m allowed to post this here, as it is somewhat related to ASP.NET. I'm new to programming, and people said that I should learn C# before trying to attempt ASP.NET, and so I've started reading Learning C#by Jesse Liberty. 

And I'm following his instructions and he says to go to the command prompt and enter csc helloworld.cs. But when I do that, it says, 'csc' is not recognized as an internal or external command, etc.
Can someone please help me figure out what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

CSC will be in <drive>:\<Winnt or windows>\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<version number> folder

So by default you can't access it(If path is not set to the related folder)!
One way of accessing it is
at command prompt type
<drive>:\<Winnt or windows>\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<version number>\csc
other way is set path first at commend prompt to <drive>:\<Winnt or windows>\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<version number> folder
and then try to use CSC
Hope it helps!

This file is located in your .net framework directory which is usually: \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\vX.X.XXXX

The easiest thing for you to do, is set your system path to the directory that the framework posted previously.

To set your system path, you can right click My Computer->Advanced Tab->Environment Variables button->Highlight Path->Edit...adding your new path.
Now whenever you use the command prompt to compile, the system will look in your Framework directory for the CSC executable.
Hope this helps!

I am trying to create my first WebPart using Visual Studio.Net 2008 and C#. This will be used in an ASP.Net web application and I don't have any plans for use in SharePoint at this time. I haven't found any code samples so I started by creating a new User Control (.ascx). The first thing I found was that there doesn't seem to be any project templates for WebParts, is that true? I attempted to go two routes, first to use WebPart as the base class and the second to use System.Web.UI.UserControl, IWebPart as the base class + Interface. I found problems using this both ways.
