Quanta, multisubunit enzyme setup. Help

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could help me with the following problem:  I have 
the pdb coordinate file (1RSC) for RubisCO.  This file includes the 
coordinates for a large (L) and a small (S) subunit.  Various transformation 
matices are included in the pdb so that one can generate the L2S2 (and other 
structures up to the L8S8 holoenzyme).  My understanding is that Quanta can 
handle these transformations and generate the desired multimeric structures, 
in this case L2S2 for subsequent energy minimization studies.  My problem is 
that I haven't got a clue how to do this.  I know that the simple solution 
should be to read the manual but I have found it to be particularly 
uninformative.  I have checked the Quanta tutorial at York Uni, but didn't 
find anything I could use there.  If anyone could advise me directly or point 
me to a source that deals with the above question I would greatly appreciate 
it.
Thanks in advance,
Greg Watson
