DRG = Digital Raster Graphic.  It's a generic term, often used to indicate
scanned paper maps.  Nothing special about them.  Usually 8-bit color
images with georeferencing (TIFF World = affine parameters).

Most likely, you don't "see" the raster because your region settings don't
match/encompass the imported raster.

g.region rast=<your drg>
