thanks for the quick answer about WinGRASS6.4.2-2, here is a related question 
- would it be possible to post a WinGRASS6.5 snapshot (even if it is not daily)?
I am in a similar situation as Michael and although I plan to use mostly 6.4.2, I would like to show the students some new features
available in GRASS6.5, especially wxnviz (and they can do some testing along the way),

thank you,
