It says in the myReshape function I can use that gluPerspective statement instead but no matter what I try it doesn't work. Help a newbie please.

"w" and "h" are defined as ints. You're doing an integer divide. Try GLfloat aspect = (GLfloat)w/(GLfloat)h as you do in the frustum call.

Also, your near and far plances look suspect. You might try something like:

gluPerspective(45.0, (GLfloat)w/(GLfloat)h, 0.1, 10.0);

From the docs for gluPerspective:
Quote:
zNear
Specifies the distance from the viewer to the near clipping plane (always positive).

zFar
Specifies the distance from the viewer to the far clipping plane (always positive).

For sure, it doesn't like the negative value.
