Well, here's a post.  I would think it would depend on the number
of atoms you want to display; there is a limit hard-coded into Frodo.
Other than that, all you have to do is enter your symops in SAM
and then specify a suitably humungous symmetry radius in CHAT, turn
symm on (command SYMM) and off you go.
