After carrying out a minimization for 30000 steps, I have to go for NVT and
NPT equiilibration. What should be the input file for NVT equlibration step
??... These are the parameters that I am using for NVT and NPT


# Integrator Parameters
timestep 2.0 ;# 2fs/step
rigidBonds all ;# needed for 2fs steps
nonbondedFreq 1
fullElectFrequency 2
stepspercycle 10
# Constant Temperature Control
langevin on ;# do langevin dynamics
langevinDamping 5 ;# damping coefficient (gamma) of 5/ps
langevinTemp $temperature
langevinHydrogen off ;# don't couple langevin bath to hydrogens


I don't know what parameters to use ??

Pls help..

Also, I want to know that after finishing the equilibration , what all
parameters we need to give to simulate my system for 10ns.
