John, You can do it from scratch with PlotVectorField from the Graphics`PlotField` package, but you make make your life easier (and get prettier plots) by using my DEGraphics package, which can be found at MathSource (it's part of the "DiffEqs" suite of packages) or here: http://www.math.armstrong.edu/faculty/hollis/mmade/DiffEqs Thanks for giving me the opportunity to make this shameless plug :^) --- Selwyn Hollis John M.
