It's a question I'd like answered, too! I've not found any obvious
method, but have tried showing lone pairs as ghostly, transparent
surfaces. It works pretty well. Send me an e-mail if you want me to send
you an example.

Subject: [Molvis-list] depicting lone pair electrons in rasmol or chime

Can electron pairs be represented in chime or rasmol?  I want to set up 
some simple molecules and depict the lone pairs.  I was thinking of 
doing it with various sizes of overlapping "virtual" atoms in dots 
mode.  Has anyone tried this?
