Hello,
I'm rather new to OpenGL, taking a class at school, and I seem to need to get OpenGL 2.0. Does anyone know where I can download it? My machine has older version, I think ~1.5.

Thanks,
Anthony

OpenGL implementations come with the graphics drivers for your graphics board.
If you can have OpenGL 2.0 at all depends on the graphics board you have, some just can't support it because the hardware is lacking the necessary features. In that case a graphics hardware upgrade is recommended.

There is a way to play with newer features on older NVIDIA boards by emulating the newer capabilities in software inside the OpenGL driver. Be warned, that's really slow.
You need this tool to enable it http://developer.nvidia.com/object/nvemulate.html

The other SW renderer choice would be MESA. http://www.mesa3d.org
