Help for a rookie? (peptide sequences)

I am not a protein chemist, I'm an information person..
I've looked at a number of Internet sequence systems (Swiss-Prot,
Prosite, Molecules R Us, etc.) but still have a problem.
I've been given a 5-amino acid sequence and need to make a
3-dimensional picture of it. Suppose I had Phe-Ala-Glu-Val-Tyr; what
would it look like in 3-D? What if I added a hydroxly group or a
Fluorine to one of the amino acids? What would it do?
Anyone know of any PC (Windows?) or Internet services that can do this
for me? I just got RasWin so I can view *.PDB files.
Swiss-Prot, Prosite, etc, seem to either tell me that the sequence is
too short or it returns a list of hundreds and hundreds of proteins.
Anyone know of a drawing program that will allow to to draw a peptide
by clicking in an amino-acid name and having the structure appear on
Forgive my lack of expertise, but any info would be much appreciated!!
