REQ: Protein transmembrane segment modeling

I am an undergraduate at Worcester Polytechnic Institute
researching the Na,K-ATPase. I am interested in the cation
coordinating ability of oxy-containing amino acids in the
inner, hydrophillic region of the transmebrane segments.
I have done some point mutation/kenetics studies of the
enzyme, but I am interested in molecular modeling and plan
to complete my senior research project with a 3-d hypothetical
model of the TMs I am studying.
We have some crosslinking data, and I am looking for some sort
of program for a PC or UNIX platform that could help me in
positioning/visualizing the TM fragments. I have been using
PCMODEL in my molecular modeling class, but am I would like
something more specifically geared towards protein chemistry.
