Topology/parameter files for glycerol?

Could somebody send me working topology/parameter files for glycerol, or
explain to me why mine don't work?  The error I get is when hbuild reaches
the glycerol; it says:
 %CODDIH-ERR: no dihedral parameters for CH2E CH1E OH1  H

This is despite teh fact that there is the line
dihe X    CH1E OH1  X    1.5       3       0.0! CHANGED TO ROUGHLY MEOH
in  If I explicitly add the line for CH2E CH1E OH1 H,
it doesn't help.

Here are my files:



  ATOM C1   TYPE=CH2E   CHARge= 0.25   END  !#
  ATOM O1   TYPE=OH1   CHARge=-0.65   END  !#
  ATOM C2   TYPE=CH1E   CHARge= 0.25   END  !#
  ATOM O2   TYPE=OH1   CHARge=-0.65   END  !#
  ATOM C3   TYPE=CH2E   CHARge= 0.25   END  !#
