checkpoint software for NAMD?

I'm running NAMD on some i386 machines using an FC4 Linux. I will need to
reboot the machines periodically into another OS, unfortunately
interrupting the NAMD jobs.

I would like to checkpoint the NAMD jobs to restart at the EXACT step in
the cycle at which they were interrupted. Restart files could work, but I
would have to conservatively estimate the restart frequency.

Is there a checkpoint capacity built into NAMD? Does anyone have any
experience with checkpoint software for Linux environments?
