What a pity. The WHAT IF program, developed by Gert Vriend, is since a
few months also available for MS/DOS. The academic site-license for
the package (not restricted to 1 computer-architecture), costs

But then it does also serious protein modelling, not only viewing. And
the user-interface is the same, whether it runs on MS/DOS, Linux, SGI,
ALPHA, SUN, Bruker, ESV, PS300, NeXT, HP, ....
