At least we have managed it by coping all Gromacs files to
D:\programs\gromacs\ .

Though there was one odd obstacle: every time the program has being
installed in C:\Program files\ irrespecive of what directory has been
chosen. Strange, isn't it?! But after files were copied to another
directory everything seemed to work.

Thanks for advise and for supporting win2k! :-)
