What you need to do depends on linkages. There are patches (PRES in CHARMM .rtf
files) that tell you how each residue is manipulated in the case of a patch;
refer to the CHARMM documentation online for specifics. The file you'll need is
Otherwise, use the force field files as a template to rename your input
structure so CHARMM-GUI can process it. This is probably the much faster route.
