Everyone here has their own stack of to-do's :)  And besides, it's always better 
to learn how to solve a problem, is it not?  If formatting is a problem, see the 


What exactly is the error message you're getting from pdb2gmx?  You will likely 
get useful help if you can demonstrate what you are doing to troubleshoot your 
own problem, as I suggested here:


If you've tried PRODRG, as you said in that message, I really don't know what 
the problem with the PDB file would be - every structure I've obtained from the 
server has had proper formatting.  You can verify that for yourself at the first 
link I posted.

You can also draw structures using xleap (now part of the *free* AmberTools). 
There should be absolutely no problem with the formatting of those files, we've 
been using them in our lab for years without ever once encountering a formatting
