How can you render to a texture in opengl?

You can not render direct to a texture so the normal way is to render to the backbuffer and use glCopyTexImage2D.

Check out p_buffer extension on newer cards.

Right, I forgot that alternative.
I think that the pbuffer is more like an extension to the driver than the card. You have it also for TNT cards if you have recent drivers. I do not know if it is faster than the backbuffer approach but you are not limited to how the backbuffer is setup.
