How do I load an extension in linux? I've tried using glew but if I call glewInit(), nothing is drawn on the screen. The extension in question is ARB_multisample (http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/ARB/multisample.txt)

Well, if it's not in the core ( alot of things are ), then you can use glXGetProcAddress or you can use SDL's one which is SDL_GL_GetProcAddress to get the extension pointers.
