As I'm sure you can tell, I'm fairly new at programming for the PDA with
C++. I have been using the .NETCF and C# in the past, but my current
project requires the use of C++. **pauses for flames**

How did you go about compiling the libraries? Were you able to use a
downloaded version of bjam to compile for VC8 + WinCE?

Since I am unfamiliar with bjam and all, my first instinct was to put the
classes I need into projects in Visual Studio, but at second glance it
seemed like quite an undertaking. Then, I found the CreateThread method in
windows.h and have been playing with it a bit. I think it will get me
through what I need to do with threads, for now, but I'd say I'll need a
better implementation soon.

Thanks for your help.
