Dear xiaojiong,

You can do the following:
1. Equilibrate your system with AMBER as you would do regularly.
2. Run an additional equilibration stage (NPT) in NAMD starting with the
AMBER equilibrated structure (NAMD can read AMBER topology and coordinates)
3. Do as much standard MD in NAMD as you wish
4. Start RAMD simulations

Please take a look at the NAMD documentation for specific input flags.
Some reading is required before you start ...
Please do some of the NAMD tutorials if you are not familiar with NAMD.
Please check this site as well:

The RAMD is, I believe, quite well documented in NAMD. Just check the
NAMD user guide. If you have more specific questions, please address
them to me in private without the AMBER list ....
This issue does not concern AMBER users anymore.
Alternatively you can use the NAMD list.
