If you have an old card (Vodoo) do you only get hardware supported OpenGL in full screen and the color depth should be 16 bits. I think that you should get software OpenGL if you do not get hardware support but I am not sure.

Have you tried other OpenGL programs without GLUT like the NeHe tutorials?
