AMBER: building amino acid based surfactants?

I have a question about building an amino acid based surfactant molecule.
We (Ping Jiang) and I are trying to build several dipeptide surfactant
molecules. We have tried many different things and can not seem to get it
to work. The dipeptides are coupled to undecylenic acid to from undecyl
dipeptide surfactants. The general structure is shown in the attached power
point slide. Any suggestion would be GREATLY appreciated. We are new to
AMBER and therefore we are probably making some silly mistakes but
unfortunately we keep running into a brick wall.
