On VC80 (and other VCs) the lib file will be linked to automatically
when you include the header files (using a "#pragma comment (lib, ...)"
if I understand it correctly.) So you shouldn't have to specify any of
the lib files explicitly.
I believe the file to link to depends on the CRT you're linking against.
If you're linking to CRT statically (as opposed to CRT in a DLL) you
should use the 's' versions ("s" or "sgd") otherwise the non-static
files. Similarly, if you are linking against a "debug build" of the CRT,
you should use the "gd" versions.
Hope I helped!
