OPLS/AA is an all-atom force field, whereas the GROMOS force fields are 
not. Perhaps you should review why you are using whatever force field 
you think you should be using. I have no idea what prodrg does, but if 
it writes OPLS/AA-suitable topologies and you want to go along this path 
then you should go ahead and make prodrg do so. Otherwise you need to 
look at alternatives, like generating a PDB structure (with or without 
hydrogens) and, if that structure is without hydrogens, then using some 
tool to generate hydrogens (e.g. gromacs' pdb2gmx?)
