OpenGL32.lib is not a custom library it is linked to opengl32.dll that is loading the card specific OpenGL implementation. This is not visible to the programmer and is not important.
If you want to use the cards extra features do you need extra headers available from ATI in your case. The standard OpenGL functions has software implementations available if the card does not support some of them. For the extensions does no such sw functions exists so you must check that the card support the function at runtime.
You will find a lot more information about how to use extensions and other stuff here http://www.opengl.org/
