You need to end up with a .top file that has the logical structure of

#include force field files
#include CNT.itp
#include peptide.itp
#include solvent.itp

Peptide 1
SOL 10000

and a coordinate file whose molecules are ordered exactly as in the 
above field, and whose atoms within molecules are ordered exactly as in 
the [atoms] fields in the .itp file. Your molecule names must match 
those given in the .itp files.

See the examples in section 5.7.1-5.7.3 of the manual.
