Orthoganol coordinates to Crystal ?

Here is a dumb question :-
	Does anyone out there have a 'easy' method of getting a molecule
in orthoganol coordinates into crystal coordinates ?  (We had a
structure which was taken from an X-ray, minimised it in Orthoganol
space and now want to get it back into the same X-ray space....  I guess
we have to keep some of the crystal coordinates to get the origin and
orientation right....  Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated....
PS The X-ray was minimised in SHELX if that helps.  I was under the
impression that SHELX could probably build up a structure from known
bond distances and angles ?  (I'm not the crystallographer, just the
molecular modeller :-)
