There are 54 atoms in the system - 30 of them are in the "belly" and kept
still. It is a DNA/small molecule system. One nucleotide pair and a small
molecule. I used the example in the manual for set up using antechamber
and leap. I didn't setBox as it wasn't mentioned in the example. The
inpcrd file is the prmcrd file created by antechamber using my pdb
containing all 3 molecules.

One thing different than in the sander example in the manual was that I
read that belly can only be used when ntb=0, so I changed it from ntb=2 in
the example. As may be obvious, I am new to using AMBER, and I am more
used to using GUI molecular modeling programs that have a lot of defaults
available. I see that I had ntb=1 in my mdin noted in my last posting, I
have to look into why I changed it. My understanding is that I can't run a
periodic boundary condition with belly atoms.
