To compile, you need at least two files, gl.h and opengl32.lib. You may need glu.h and glu32.lib aswell. These files can be downloaded in the download section at the OpenGL (http://www.opengl.org) site.
These files are generally included in the major compiler packages.

And I suggest you visit NeHe's (http://nehe.gamedev.net) tuorials on OpenGL, the best you can find. Also some tutorials on how to get OpenGL to work.
