You probably want to use C/C++.

You can get an excellent free compiler/IDE called Dev-C++ from www.bloodshed.net. (http://www.bloodshed.net.)

If you don't know C or C++ you should learn that fairly well before trying OpenGL. When you are reading for OpenGL, goto nehe.gamedev.net for tutorials.

nehe is a not a good place to learn opengl in my opinion. He skips around A LOT, and admits he does... I'd go to his site, and on the left side there are a bunch of links... click on the "The Red book" one, it should be in bold. Start yourself there, or if you have some cash, buy yourself the real one! (the real online is a version ahead)
