I know not much about API and graphic library so my questions is: how could I install openGL on my machine ? is that OK I go this download page and picked the executable file named opengl98 and run it ?

anything else required ?

Well, yeah, that does install it but there is still someway to go to be creating nice apps. You may wanty top try glut to help you set up an environment to start in.

You need to give us more information. Are you running Windows or Linux? If Windows, you will find native support for OpenGL in *all* windows versions (even NT). The actual drivers are provided by your graphics card manufacturer.

Didn't you read the info on download page?
It's states clearly that you don't need to d/l any OpenGL libs as they are included in all Win OS, plus your graphics card drivers also support openGL.
