	There's a program by ISIS ( I think) that is free
for academic use that lets you draw structures and lets you view 
them using rasmol.  You can also try VMD which is for unix/linux
machines that does a nice job.  VMD also has an interface to 
a free molecular dynamics package NAMD that may be useful
for getting movies or clips.
