Dear all users,

I'm tryng to build a lipid double layer by myself(using GENCONF 
command), and, looking for advices and some help inside this mailing 
list, I've found a November 30th 2002 mail titled "Am I wrong ?", whose 
text(the final part) is reported below:


Genconf is fine, but very crude. You can also just mix the lipids and
water and let it go, after some NS (10-50) you will probably have a nice


Really? Well, a 10-50 ns simulation is very machine time expensive, and 
by now(I'm only a beginner in MD) I'm working on one machine only!
Is there a more straightforward way to build a double layer(no problems 
with GENCONF command in order to build a monolayer....)?

Thank you all in advance,
