Dear MathGroup Experts,

Is there a slick way to use Mathematica to plot the phase portrait of 
a pair of (straightforward) differential equations?  I'd also like to 
see a plot of the associated vector/direction field.  I found a good 
package called DynPac, but it's very cumbersome to use, and I was 
hoping there's another tool out there that my students would feel 
more comfortable using.

Thanks for whatever information you can share.
