Protein folding software

My friend wishes to ask a question..

Recently a few programs have been written that tackle the problem of 
protein folding:  by analyzing amino acid environments or long-range 
contacts, they check whether a primary sequence can adopt a known 
protein fold.  I'm aware that Skolnick's Matchmaker is available from 
TRIPOS associates, and that Thornton is trying to get a server version 
of her program running, but I haven't been able to find out where I 
can obtain any of the many other programs which have been written. 
Would anybody out there know how I can get the programs from 
Eisenberg (UCLA), Sippl (University of Salzburg), Bryant (nih), 
Crippen, Wolynes, or Schneider?  

Thanks for your help,
