I am guessing you are running windows??
Also need to know what compiler you are using.

But here is a standard location of files:

just copy the glut32.dll file to you windows/system directory.

Then find the directory in which your compiler is located and copy the library and include files there.

Directory should look something like this:
/..../include/GL/glut.h
/..../lib/glut32.lib

Then just add the glut32.lib to your linker settings in your compiler.

If you need the files as in glut32.dll, glut.h, and glut.lib you can find them here GLUT Files (http://www.bluedev.net/downloads/downloads/glut_files.zip) .

Hope this helps.
