Good places to start are in the FAQs section, Documentation section is okay, download the opengl header files, libs and dlls (all packed into opengl.exe) from download section. Place each file in appropriate directory. You might try picking up a book or 2. I like OpenGL Programming Guide (red book) and OpenGL Refernce Manual (blue book). I've heard OpenGL Bible is good, but I do not know. Then there are many tutorials you can find at many sites like nehe.gamedev.net (http://nehe.gamedev.net) or www.gametutorials.com. (http://www.gametutorials.com.) And read this board.

Good place to start is also GLUT which gives you easy framework for OpenGL programming.
