Just to use it for openGL applications, make sure you have the newest version of your video drivers. Example: ATI has its openGL video drivers in the same install as the direct X ones.
Nvidia also may do the same.

As for other video cards, go to the mfg's website and see if they support openGL and download the drivers.

For programming under openGL, you will need to do the above.
Also will need some type of programming language, C/C++ being the most popular, but you can also use others.
There are a few good free C/C++ compilers out there with all the openGL librarys included with them.
