Dear Shmuel,

          There is actually nothing in any of the tutorials that says 
that Sybyl specifically is required.  You will, however, need a 
visualization program of some kind and some method for adding hydrogens 
and calculating partial charges if you program of choice does not have 
those features.  There is a list (although it is not comprehensive) of 
available programs on the DOCK Web site at
