Looking for structure comparison software

Hello,
	We have recently solved the crystal structure for a new protein, and
would like to know if there is a relatively painless way to find out if
it represents a unique fold. Ideally, one could automatically compare the
new structure against all structures (or a subset of structures) deposited
within the pdb. Or compare, say, the structure of a single domain against
other proteins which may have similar functional domains. Does such
software exist, and if so, how can one obtain it ? I thought I heard that
such a project was underway in Dr. Janet Thorton's lab, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for any help,
