The ftp site is orion.oac.uci.edu, directory /protein/Kinemage/pcMAGE

You want the binary file MAGE_all.exe.  This is a self-expanding archive;
file when it is on your computer, from the DOS prompt type 
"MAGE_all -d".  This should create all the files you need, of which the
main one is Mage_2_3.exe.  Other important files are Install.kin,
Mage_2_2.txt (MAGE instructions), and MagePref.kin (for setting 
preferences).  If the latter files aren't in MAGE-all.exe, you can request 
them individually.

The /protein/Kinemage directory has the file2_9Kins.Ndx, which lists all
the kinemages available, including the volume and issue number, which tells
you where to find them; individual kinemages are in
/protein/Kinemage/KinsByVol/, with further subdirectories such as v1n1,
..., vXvY.  Also in /protein/Kinemage is V1_KINS.exe, a self-extracting
archive of all kinemages from vol 1 of Protein Science; when it's on your
computer, enter the command "V1_KINS -d" to expand.  For demonstrations,
you can get ProTour1.kin through ProTour6.kin; these are in

(Kinemage for the pc is for Windows 3.1.  A Mac version also exists.)
