[Dock-fans] DOCK 6 amber scoring

I'm just starting to play around with the Amber scoring module in DOCK6 
and I have a few problems. I've updated and recompiled DOCK6 with the 4 
patches available and it seems to run fine on my Mac running MacOSX 
10.4.8. The first problems arose from the mopac.sh script which requires 
the DOCK_HOME to be set, easily fixed but it wasn't mentioned in the DOCK 
6.0 User manual. 
Secondly, the mopac.sh script uses the following line :-
ln  mopac.in FOR005
on my mac this doesn't work. It needs to be 
ln -s mopac.in FOR005

When, I have run an Amber scoring calculation I just allow the ligand to 
be flexible, with the protein fixed and everything thing seems to work 
fine, except for the output coordinates. The file 
protein.ligand.1.final_pose.pdb has the ligand coordinates updated, 
however the other file that is written out output_scored.mol2 only has the 
starting coordinates (plus the updated score). Is it possible to get the 
updated ligand coordinates to be written to output_scored.mol2 file ? 
Also, is it possible to get the final coordinates of the ligand by itself, 
after it has undergone the dynamics, to compare with the docked structure 

Thanks Jeff.
