When I download openGL( for windowsXP) where do I unpack the files at? Which directory/folder?

This is part of what the console says:

Initializing OpenGL driver
...getting DC: succeeded
...GLW_ChoosePFD( 16, 16, 0 )
...23 PFDs found
...GLW_ChoosePFD failed
...GLW_ChoosePFD( 16, 16, 0 )
...23 PFDs found
...GLW_ChoosePFD failed
...failed to find an appropriate PIXELFORMAT
...restoring display settings
...WARNING: could not set the given mode (3)
...shutting down QGL
...unloading OpenGL DLL
----- CL_Shutdown -----
RE_Shutdown( 1 )
-----------------------
GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem

I didnt know if I could paste the whole thing..but you get the idea..

OpenGL v1.2, 1.3 or 1.4 are included with the drivers for your OpenGL video cards. So you only need to make sure you have the latest OpenGL driver for your video card. Each OpenGL accelerator manufacturer writes their own OpenGL drivers. So if you need a new or updated driver, go to the manufacturer's web site for your OpenGL accelerator board and download and install their latest OpenGL driver.

1. Download the video drivers for your card
2. unzip it to any folder
3. run the setup.exe

you may need to uninstall the old drivers using control panel
