The initial coordinates of the Drude particle are the same as the parent atom.
Following minimization and/or propagation in dynamics, the Drude moves in
response to the surrounding environment.
Have a look at http://mackerell.umaryland.edu/charmm_drude_ff.shtml if you want
the latest features for simulating polarizable systems. It's not in an official
release (it's on my still-too-long to-do list) but the instructions are there,
as well as sample .mdp files. The code has a modified genion that inserts
polarizable ions for you, though this is really a trivial operation, as noted above.
