There are several people interacting with GRASS from a PC using any of the
X-Window server programs that are available.  I have used a program called
eXceed Plus  or something like that that works great.  I had a list of
vendors around here, and if I find it I will post it.  The critera
are the obvious ones:  needs a mouse, ethernet drivers and hardware, 
and a high res 256 color super VGA display.  preferably 800x600x256
or 1024x768x256 or better.  Picking a fast card helps a lot too.
