why do I get a illegal operation on glGenLists() if I do gluBuild2DMipmaps or glTexImage2D the line just before but it work if I don''t (sure I see a white texture)... here is the code:
CFont::CFont()								// Build Our Font Display List

	glGenTextures(1, &FontTex.texID);
	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, FontTex.texID);			// Select Our Font Texture

	gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_RGBA, FontTex.width, FontTex.height, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, FontTex.data);

	float	cx;											// Holds Our X Character Coord

	float	cy;											// Holds Our Y Character Coord

	base=glGenLists(256);								// Creating 256 Display Lists

	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, FontTex.texID);			// Select Our Font Texture

	for (loop=0; loop<256; loop++)						// Loop Through All 256 Lists

		cx=float(loop%16)/16.0f;						// X Position Of Current Character

		cy=float(loop/16)/16.0f;						// Y Position Of Current Character

		glNewList(base+loop,GL_COMPILE);				// Start Building A List

			glBegin(GL_QUADS);							// Use A Quad For Each Character

				glTexCoord2f(cx,1-cy-0.0625f);			// Texture Coord (Bottom Left)

				glVertex2i(0,0);						// Vertex Coord (Bottom Left)

				glTexCoord2f(cx+0.0625f,1-cy-0.0625f);	// Texture Coord (Bottom Right)

				glVertex2i(16,0);						// Vertex Coord (Bottom Right)

				glTexCoord2f(cx+0.0625f,1-cy);			// Texture Coord (Top Right)

				glVertex2i(16,16);						// Vertex Coord (Top Right)

				glTexCoord2f(cx,1-cy);					// Texture Coord (Top Left)

				glVertex2i(0,16);						// Vertex Coord (Top Left)

			glEnd();									// Done Building Our Quad (Character)

			glTranslated(10,0,0);						// Move To The Right Of The Character

		glEndList();									// Done Building The Display List

	}													// Loop Until All 256 Are Built

I have no idea what you are saying
but.. do you have a valid opengl context before you call ANY other opengl command?

are you sure that the error = 0 before you call the GenBuffers?

When I run the program I get

Unhandled exception at 0x68f86be5 in SkyDunge.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00375000.

and it put a green arrow on the line
but I just tried with another comman after gluBuild2DMipmaps (glError) and it crash anyway... should be an texture loading problem.... ohh well the error do =0 before gluBuild2DMipmaps

aahhh nevermind I just saved the bmp to 24bpp and it work..
