Using Frodo to color black-and-white ribbons pictures! That's a new
one! You can't do it with Frodo/Tom, I'm afraid. (We never got around
to implementing color PostScript.)
Why don't you make color ribbons pictures the way the rest of the
world does -- with Mike Carson's program? Mike Carson's e-mail address
is carson at gtx.cmc.uab.edu . Many other programs (including two that you
already have, Insight II and Rasmol) can display in a ribbons format,
but Mike Carson's is the classic.

You can ftp Babel from joplin.biosci.arizona.edu, directory pub/Babel,
but I don't know if it does what you want.
