hmm. you're video card may not support OpenGL 2.0. I think it would just not be there if this was the case.

Update the drivers, and it should appear....
Or press OGL info in the about box, to see if GLSL is supported.

Not all cards will, some that do are slow, and only some procedurals work...
NT do not provide the functionality for programmers to access GLSL stuff via the SDK, so it's only about 5 procedurals that work anyway..... Bah!!!
