 dear sirs,
   thank you for your reply.
   im using a server with 4 cpus and iam unable to
install the parallel version because of some c
compiler problems.when i tried tio install the mpi
libraries first, it said the c compiler cannot create
executables. the MD using sander is taken up by only
one cpu (why it is always 12% ?) . thats why I asked
such a i reinstalled the serial version.
i tried three sander MDs simulatneously and the system
now uses two of its cpus (12% each) (much better than
one cpu i think). is there any solution to this? the
system is running somewhat slower during working.

thanks in advance
