Generally it's probably not a good idea to rely on tutorials designed 
around 3.3 when a google search for gromacs tutorial shows a series of 4.5.x 
tutorials written by Justin himself, with explanations of why certain steps
are conducted. (also when certain features may be implemented differently,
such as the introduction of the v-rescale thermostat).
