# Trouble with harmonic oscillator equation

#### deex171

Consider the harmonic oscillator equation (with m=1),
x''+bx'+kx=0
where b≥0 and k>0. Identify the regions in the relevant portion of the bk-plane where the corresponding system has similar phase portraits.

I'm not sure exactly where to start with this one. Any ideas?
