I have to have OpenGL on my computer for my computer graphics class. I went to www.opengl.org (http://www.opengl.org) and I couldn't find a frickin way to download and install the software, OpenGL.

Can anyone, who doesn't mind taking the time, help me out here?

I'll appreciate it a lot. Thanks...

OpenGL comes installed with any current operating system (Solaris, Linux, Windows, yadayada).
So it should be already on your system.

However you will be stuck with a software emulated OpenGL 1.1 until you install a driver that is OpenGL compliant (you get those from the manufacturer of your 3d card/chip like for example www.nvidia.com (http://www.nvidia.com) or www.ati.com). (http://www.ati.com).)
