You can learn about OpenGL 2.0 shaders in OpenGL 2.0 specification and GLSL (GL shader language) specification. Here are the links:
OpenGL 2.0 Specification (http://www.opengl.org/documentation/specs/version2.0/glspec20.pdf)
GLSL specification (http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/ARB/GLSLangSpec.Full.1.10.59.pdf)

And of course there's the wiki:

Use GLEW, one call to initialize all extensions and off you go into the blazingly bright and shiny world of OpenGL 2.0 ! :D

And if you want to learn about shader-programming and GLSL in particular, i recommend the "Orange Book" (real title: "OpenGL Shading Language").
