Yeah it's a bastard. I was comparing CHARMm energies in Insight II with 
my implementation of CHARMM forcefield in gromacs and had to do this. 
Easiest was to do the calculation with CHARMm, then take its PDB file, 
feed it to gromacs and if any hydrogens got messed around, to replace 
them with the CHARMm positions.

Yeah that's what I did, I think. Maybe nstep=1. Whatever.


P.S. Rob, every post you make seems to be being sent twice. Can you 
avoid this please?
