Beginner guide to use Panda3D in C++?

Hello, I’m developing a game with some friends of mine and I was wondering how I can get Panda3D to compile in C++?

Can anyone help me out and help me get this compiled and run in MS visual studio 2005. I’m a complete newbie so please be as specific as possible, thanks for the support.

When you download the source code, it comes with two documents: INSTALL-MK and INSTALL-PP. These documents describe two different approaches to compiling Panda3D. I recommend following the instructions in the first document, INSTALL-MK, which is a bit simpler if you are not very familiar with using command-line builds.
