I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned the distribution-mapping program
DIVA.  It can be downloaded at the following
site:  http://www.cipotato.org/diva/

This link to a short paper also provides some background information and
examples:  http://www.cipotato.org/diva/docs/pgr127_15-19.pdf  Also see
Hijmans & Spooner (2001), American Journal of Botany 88:2101, "Geography of
wild potato species".

I have found it to be very user-friendly (much more so than arcview), and
it is *free*!
