With X11 installed, RasMol seems to run on newer Macs.  If there is a
specific configuration that is causing a problem, please let me know.

Mamoru Yamanishi is working on a version of RasMol that starts nicely by
double-clicking and has a native feel on file selection under OS-X.
The X11 subsystem is needed, but the package is easy to use.

On the other side of things -- an MS Windows version with support for
Russian messages and menus translated by Gregory A. Pozhvanov is
being tested.

If you are interested in participating in testing these kits, please
contact me.

P.S.  Eric Martz is right about jmol being a very good program.  It is
preferable to Chime.
