You will want to look at the flex.defn file:
copy the "flex.defn" file (from dock distribution in dock6/parameters/flex.defn) and manually modify to include definition of only the bonds you would like.
for an example that will only move polar hydrogens.
Custom atom types may need to be defined and used.

Dear Trent and Sudipto,
I have one question related to the "Fixed Anchor Docking" procedure you
use in the group.
Do you know how to include in anchor definition more atoms (or different
atoms) than those identified automatically by DOCK ?
I tried to do that with "Manual Specification of Non-rotatable Bonds"
by defining @<TRIPOS>SET, but it seems that the new version of DOCK still
doesn't take this information into account.
looking forward to your reply.

>> Hi Dariusz,
