experience with semi-empirical MD



Hi,
 Several people told me, in a reply to my question, that it's possible
 to do semi-empirical molecular dynamics (AM1, PM3) with
 Hyperchem, Mopac and Spartan. Now I wonder if somebody can
 give me some practical information on systems one can treat on a
 state of the art linux or windows 2000 machine. I know this is not
 something fixed and depends on how long one is willing to wait for
 the simulation to finish but I just want to get some feeling. Any
 experience, especially with solution systems, is more then welcome.
 Cheers
 Martijn
