I don't think you can get around this with the prepi format, since the
tree structure implied requires the re-numbering. But the mol2 format
may satisfy your needs, and I don't think it renumbers the atoms.

In general, we are recommeding people use the mol2 format in place of prepi
(especially in Amber 8), unless they have some particular need for the latter.

....hope this helps...dac
