First, why are you running antechamber for a peptide? Antechamber is designed
for molecules that are _not_ part of the standard databases. Furthermore,
you must give antechamber only one residue at a time, not a complete polymer.

If you _did_ want to go the antehcamber route, you would need to load the
bsheettest.prep file before using a loadpdb command.
