    Ok, to best set you straight, you should purchase the OpenGL Programming Guide. It's a red book. Also useful is the OpenGL Refrence Manual, but you really don't need to get that. Some good sites on the net that'll allow you to get your feet wet are http://www.gametutorials.com and NeHe's tutorials... I don't recall off hand what the link is... but just look up "NeHe" "OpenGL" on your favorite web search engine, and you'll find it. Anyways, I hope you have fun programming.

    OpenGL graphics library is shiped with windows XP, only need have installed the openGL video graphics drivers which are provided by you video card maker.

    As for library's for the compiler, it depends on what compiler you have. many have the core openGL library's shipped with them.
