Whoa!!! I was just told that x-plor's source is not distributed.  If that's
true then none of the above will help you one bit....

Perhaps Axel Brunger just needs a volenteer to compile x-plor under Linux?

I have an ALPHA based machine that we just put Linux on also.  This thing
is VERY fast and would also make a great X-plor machine....(I'll try it
with Charmm as soon as we get the G77 compiler ported to the Alpha).
