Try this:
http://hem.passagen.se/opengl/getstarted/

You will find: free compilers/editors, OpenGL headers and drivers, OpenGL documentation and links.

The pages are geared towards the GLFW toolkit (although not THAT specific). For compiling programs from "the net", you probably want to make sure that you have link libs and includes for the GLUT toolkit too, since it is very commonly used for OpenGL demos.

Most compilers already have all the openGL headers and library's included.

Except for the glut which in not included in all compilers.

What OS are you using?
What is the compiler you are using?
