You install the Sequence Retrieval System (SRS), copyrighted by Thure Etzold. 
There, you parse the FASTA file output and link it into PDB. The 
result shows you immediately which hits in the fasta output had actual 
counterparts in PDB. The fun is that you could even use a TFASTA and link 
EMBL to PDB this way. 

Another tip would be to install the NRL_3D database as provided by 
PIR International. The entries there are exclusively PDB entries. 
Running FASTA on there would give you PDB entries entirely.
