Hi Chen,

I don't use PRODRG myself, but Daan is reading this list, so I'm sure 
he'll reply too.

In principle, you can use any solvent you want with Gromacs; the genbox 
program that
places just needs a file with coordinates of equilibrated solvent 
molecules. The distribution
already includes coordinates for decane, DMSO, methanol, SPC water (you 
can use these
for any 3-particle water model, though), TIP4P water and a mixture of 
water and urea.

We'd be happy to include more coordinates if you create any other 
solvent :-)
