[gmx-users] charged systems

I set up a system (Protein + water) for MD with total charge -8. I read
all the related mail in user-list archives about non-zero charged
systems and I am not sure to have understood everything.
The charge of my system is high, so I need to add 8 Na to neutralize it.
Is it correct if I put ions with genion, according to the most favorable
electrostatic potential (not at random)?
Should the ion insertion precede the EM step?
How should I treat long range electrostatics? I read cut-off is not
suitable with ions (high risk of artifacts); is PME with the parameters
below adequate for EM and then 2-3 ns MD?
coulombtype = PME
rvdw = 0.9
rlist = 0.9
rcoulomb = 0.9
fourierspacing = 0.12
pme_order = 4
ewald_rtol = 1e-5
In a system with zero total charge (isoionic protein) and no ions, may
I use cuts-off instead of PME?
