They're not really hard. If you want to use win32 code to create the window I don't think you need to make any modifications.
If you want to use glut, then you can grap it from here (http://www.xmission.com/~nate) then extract the header file to:
[VS 2003 install dir]\VC7\PlatformSDK\Include\GL,
extract the lib file to:
[VS 2003 install dir]\VC7\PlatformSDK\Lib
and finally drop the dll to C:\WINDOWS\System32 (depends on which win's your using, above is for XP). Post again if you have further difficulties.

PS: I'm not sure about the directories, but if you get to 'PlatformSDK' withing VC's directory you're there.
