One of the best places to get pdb files is at the following URL

http://www.nih.gov/htbin/pdb

It is called "Molecules R Us". If you are using Mosaic to access this
web site and you have Rasmol running on your Unix box then you can
create a .mailcap file in your home directory something like.

chemical/x-pdb; /usr/local/bin/rasmol %s

and when Mosaic comes across a file with the .pbd extention then it
will call up Rasmol to display the molecule on screen. The file is
loaded into /tmp and you can quite happily rotate the image to 
your hearts content. Works much the same was as mosaic calling up xv
to dispaly .gif files.
