I am not able to figure out your problem. "HG" is the name used in all
amber libraries (except for the very old united atom residues). Your
web site indicates that you found a line with "HSG" in it, but it doesn't say
exactly which file this was found in. Using leaprc.ff99 should give you
"HG" as the cysteine proton name.

So I think we will need more details about exactly what you are doing...I
can't see how to reproduce the problem you are seeing.
