You need to download GLUT on your own.
Go to homepage and click on FAQs, you should find the GLUT...

Thanks a lot for your help. I have downloaded GLUT from the indicated site in FAQs. I unzipped glut 3.7 file and found the glut.h header file but could not find the other 2 files needed under MS Visual C++ ver 6, namely: glut32.lib and glut32.dll http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
Do you have a suggestion for getting these 2 files? Thanks for you help once more.
