OpenGL newbie alert!!!

Do I need to do anything special to use OpenGL capabilities of my
graphics card ?
I have the impression PyOpenG is using the Windows emulation.

when I execute the following code:

print "glGetString - GL_VENDOR:                  ", glGetString
(GL_VENDOR)
print "glGetString - GL_RENDERER:                ", glGetString
(GL_RENDERER)
print "glGetString - GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION:", glGetString
(GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION)
print "glGetString - GL_EXTENSIONS:              ", glGetString
(GL_EXTENSIONS)
print "gluGetString - GLU_VERSION:               ", gluGetString
(GLU_VERSION)
print "gluGetString - GLU_EXTENSIONS:            ", gluGetString
(GLU_EXTENSIONS)

I get the following results:
glGetString - GL_VENDOR:                   None
glGetString - GL_RENDERER:                 None
glGetString - GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION: None
glGetString - GL_EXTENSIONS:               None
gluGetString - GLU_VERSION:                1.2.2.0 Microsoft
Corporation
gluGetString - GLU_EXTENSIONS:


I am using Python 2.6.2 and PyOpenGL3.0.1a3 on Windows 7 Enterprise
My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT card
with driver date = 7/14/2009 and version = 8.15.11.9038
