Hi... I'm building a program (on the GPU, pixel shader) that will need to have multiple rendering passes. How do I do that without downloading the result to the CPU? (someone told me to use PBuffers, how do I do that?) thanks

It all depends on what you need. If you need render-to-texture functionality, then pbuffers, or the preferred new EXT_frame_buffer_object extension can perform this. If you don't need RTT capability, then just blend on the framebuffer using the standard GL blending functions.
