there arn no noob friendly Tutorials for OpenGL, because OpenGL is inherently not noob friendly. Keep in mind that nearly everything from those legacy nehe tutorials is deprecated now. They still work, but are no good examples to learn OpenGL anymore. Keep in mind that it is absolutely not sufficient to learn the OpenGL API to do sophisticated 3d rendering, for this OpenGL is far too low level. The right way to learn OpenGL is to Stuty books about Computer Graphics, or visit lectures at University, otherwise you wont be happy with the result. If this is not what you want to do, don't waste your time, use something more high level. As far as I've heard XNA is quite good.
