if you want to do it using a reflection texture:

1) render reflection-render into FBO or just copy it to texture (geometry scaled with -1 and clipped on reflection plane)
2) project this texture to reflection plane in the shader (projective texture mapping)


there are many examples out there - especially in nvidia SDK.

its a bit different :) he gave me an explanation but i didnt read it carefully so i forgot :$
