Well, about .itp files. itp simply means "Include ToPology", i.e. a
file to be #include-d in a topology file. In most cases here on the
list it is used to designate a file which contains a [ moleculetype ]
description. The [ moleculetype ] is explained in detail in the manual
chapter 5. In short, it requires a listing of [ atoms ] (with masses,
charges, names and types) and, for molecules, also the following
[ bonds ]
[ pairs ]
[ angles ]
[ dihedrals ]
Possibly, you also want (maybe with an appropriate #ifdef .. #end)
[ position_restraints ]
[ distance_restraints ]
[ exclusions ]
Altogether, that will give you a topological description of of your
molecule which complements the coordinate information in the structure
