You need to raytrace or use reflection maps to get a mirrored surface. A scanline renderer will not do reflections by default.

The alias website should have some tutes about making glass. Take a quick look there.

Alias got rid of the old tuts.
If you want to make a glass shader, open up some of the default glass shaders that come with Maya and revers engineer it in the Hypershader.
