Changing the topology has no effect on the coordinate file. You can't magically
produce 8 proteins by manipulating the topology; you have to build a
corresponding coordinate file. If you just want replicate boxes, genconf -nbox
can do that. That may or may not be an efficient or appropriate way to deal
with the task at hand. You should build the configuration first, and modify the
topology only once you're satisfied with the configuration.
