Manually - although the gmx and Gromos96 forcefields are relatively 
similar there is no way conversions between forcefield can be reliably 
automated - a computer program cannot guess which atom type is most 
appropriate for each position in the lipid.

You can either hack the topology from scratch, or create entries in 
ffG43a2.rtp for the different lipid types (see the manual for details).
