You can use the amber mask approach for this (although it only works in
sander) you need to use the group specification for pmemd.
Here's an example:
imin=1, maxcyc=200, ntb=0, cut=99,
If you wanted to restrain all non hydrogen atoms then you would write
The mask specification is discussed in Section 11.3 of the AMBER 10 manual.
Additionally the specs for GROUP input (the old style you have in your
example) are provided in appendix B of the AMBER 10 manual.
All the best
