tleap and xleap are pure C codes, and run fine with gcc. You don't need
the Portland Group or the Intel compilers.

Or, prepare the systems on the PIII computer, and copy the resulting files
over to the Athlon's. The place you really need compute power is for the
simulation itself, not for the setup phase.

(Also, Nathan Baker (Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics) is an
local Amber/Opteron (and maybe Amber/Athlon?) expert...maybe he can give
some advice.)

....good luck...dac
