er... if any of us could answer that question we would be rich and famous!
you could have a read of some of the research papers to come out of Scheraga's
lab in Cornell University. I remember an excelent keynote speach by him which
described the ab initio predicion of protein structure.
I hope you've got a lot of computing power & time.
If on the otherhand you are wanting to predict secondary structure (not tertiary
structure which is what RASMOL displays) then there are lots of programs out
there to do this. A google search with the keywords 'secondary structure
prediction programs' brings up lots of interesting hits.
