Point your gopher client at merlot.welch.jhu.edu and select:

 -->  3.  FTP Sites, Software and Data Archives For Biology/

in this directory you'll find (among other things):

-->  2.  3D Protein Display and Sequence Analysis for the PC (UIUC)/
-->  10.  CCP4 - Programs for Protein Crystallography (U.K.)/
-->  30. Kinemages, Mage, Pkin -3D Protein Display for the Mac and PC (UIC)/
-->  34. Lots of Molecular Graphics, Dynamics and Chemistry (Brazil)/
-->  39. MULTI, molecular modelling (NIEHS-NIH)/
-->  43. MolViewer - Molecule viewing program for NeXT (Rice)/
-->  52. PDBview - View 3D protein Structures (Columbia Un.)/
-->  55. ProMod - 3D modeling software (Geneva)/
-->  59. RasMol - Molecular Graphics Visualisation tool - Unix and PC (UK)/
-->  60. RasMol - tkrasmol.tar.Z - Extended interface (Berkely) <Bin>
-->  67. XMol - display and analysis of molecular model data (MSC)/

Numbers 2, 30, and 59 are your best bet for PCs.

If someone would like to know more about gopher write me a note and I'll
send you some information to help get you started.

Best of luck,
