OpenGL 2.0 is just OpenGL 1.2 with more features essentially, code that worked in 1.2 should compile fine (and theoretically) work fine in OpenGL 2.0. To interact with OpenGL 1.2+ features however, on a Windows platform, you would need to deal with extensions, you will find a list of extensions on http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/

hope that helps
