First up, you will have either Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Can you please double-check and specify exactly what the requirements are on the box? If it says "Windows 98 or Windows 2000" and you're using XP, then you may need to run it in compatibility mode.
For the DirectX 8.1 3D accelerator card, this means your video or graphics card. This is either integrated, meaning built-in to the computer, or a separate (discrete) card, meaning a separate card that is added. You have one of these, otherwise you wouldn't be able to see anything on your monitor! If you are using XP, there's a good chance you will be using DirectX 9, which is compatible and exceeds the requirements needed.
My thinking for your problem is that the Start Button that you need to push to begin the game is either on the screen (click it with your mouse) or is one of the keys on the keyboard that has been designated as the start button. An example of this is found in the 3D Pinball game that comes with Windows XP - you need to push the <F2> Key to start a new game. See if you can find in the documentation if it's a specific key.
