Tell the authorities that PFMA rules are being broken by stupid rules.  Surely Sodhi can give you permission to get a dual boot system up and running?

Hi all 


I’m struggling to get GRASS 6 (WinGRASS, in Cygwin) to behave on XP. Have any of you got it working? If so I’d like to discuss any tips you might have picked up. Unfortunately I can’t set up a Linux machine where I am yet so have to make do on Windows. 


I’d also like to know generally who is using GRASS and for what, in an African context, and also what demand there is to learn about or use GRASS. 


Thanks in advance
