Hi Mark,
I did find the directory "gromacs-4.5.5"  
However, when I go into this folder, I have problem to do the "make" command.  I found there is no "Make" file inside the folder.  I can only see the following files inside this folder.  Should I do "make clean" then?
acinclude.m4    config        Doxyfile.in       log          shareaclocal.m4      config.log    include           Makefile.am  srcadmin           configure     INSTALL.automake  Makefile.in  testsAUTHORS         configure.ac  INSTALL.cmake     mancmake           COPYING       INSTALL-GPU       READMECMakeLists.txt  COPYING-GPU   libtool           scripts
Should I do Makefile.am or Makefile.in intead?
Best regards,

          Dear Sir/Madam,

            I am trying to install the GROMACS to my new
              workstation.  As my old one is not belong to me, I cannot
              install VMD to it.  Please kindly help to instruct if I
              did anything wrong here.  Many thanks.

              Follow the steps in http://www.cems.uvm.edu/~smanchu/gromacs_installation.html, I have done the installation
                  fftw-3.0.1 at my "/Catherine/Gromacs/fftw-3.0.1"

              Follow the steps in http://fertoledo.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/how-to-calculate-cosine-content-in-amber/,
                i.e. [wget
                  .org/pub/gromacs/gromacs-4.5.4.tar.gz], I have
                  downloaded the gromacs to my Catherine/Gromacs/

              Follow the steps in http://www.gromacs.org/Downloads/Installation_Instructions, I have start installing the

              > tar  -xzvf
              > cd gromacs-4-5-4

    The instruction for this command is wrong, because this is not the
    directory created by the previous command. Please inform the author
    of the tutorial.




              > make clean
              > ./configure
                  --prefix=/usr/local/gromacs --program-suffix=""
              > make install

              However, when I do make
                    clean, following error message appear.
                make: *** No rule to make target `clean'.  Stop.
                When I continously doing the make after ./configure step, I found the following error message:
                make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
                Could you please kindly instruct if I have done any things stupidly wrong?  Following is the log file for the configure.log, please kindly help.
