    the problem with that is that it's windows dependant. i've apparently got to build a program that is OS independant

    scroll down to the bottom and see if there is a linux port. If it uses GLUT then you have an OS independant solution. If it doesnt use GLUT, then write your own port and submit it back to NeHe when your done!
