Inquiry regarding sequence analysis (esp promoters/enhancers)

I am interested in obtaining opinions in two areas:
1) Are there databases which contain a list of the known promoter/enhancer
sequences for eukaryotes and/or is there software which can use this
information to identify these regions in a given sequence? I would
prefer packages which are designed for this specific task rather than
a collection of GCG commands which will always be out of date given the
ever increasing number of promoter/enhancer sequences.
2) Could people send me brief notes regarding their experience with PC
(DOS or UNIX) based software packages for sequence analysis (scanning
CD-ROM databases, sequence comparisons, PCR primer and probe design, etc).
I'm interested in stand-alone systems which do not require large computers.
E-mail response is fine, I will post a summary for general reference.
