As far as parameter sets.... you should know that most forcefields out
there overemphasize alpha-helix structure.... it's trickier to
simulate alpha/beta structures. Look in the literature for *anything*
done with MD and your protein (or related homologues) for more hints
and tricks. MD is not easy, but nothing ever is =P
