[Chimera-users] how to "connect" two proteins

hi all,

maybe this is a little bit too far over the capabilities of chimera, 
but i hope somebody can help me or give input.

i would like to connect two PDB structures into one chain of 
one PDB is from one globular domain, the other is from another 
globular domain including linker. i would like to try to put them 
together and see how (what possible conformations) they fit together. 
what orientations are possible and how it would look like 
(visualisation, making movies, convincing non-scientists, ...).

i could edit the PDB files in a text editor, but i would not want to 
calculate the cordinates by hand first - are there no tools to glue 
together chains?

thanx for any input how to do this with chimera or any other 

best regards,
