This question is _very_ general..

1) do you mean how to convert a RGB value to 6 bit greyscale?

or

2) do you mean to have a palette of 64 grey values displayed correctly in Windows (which is a little difficult if you have a 256 colors-only environment.. you need to handle a few wm_paletteXXX messages)

Let me know and I'll be able to help then.

The conversion (r,g,b) --> grey is a sum LIKE this:

grey = r * 0.33 + g * 0.4 + b * 0.27

I don't have the exact values at hand.. it has to do with the fact that the human eye is more sensitive to blue than to red.
I can look it up for you if need this.

Let me know more before you grade this answer..
