hi Joan,

you can download the Jmol package here:

Jmol is both an applet and a free-standing application:

The Jmol-applet is a server tool, so it requires no installation equivalent to Chime.  Just put it someplace on your server, and point your pages at it.  The Jmol home page explains how to add the applet tag to your Web pages.

The Jmol application is like RasMol - just put it where you want and double-click to launch.

you will need to convert your pages so they call the Jmol applet instead of the Chime plugin, and you may run into a small handful of scripting inconsistencies between the two.  (e.g., Jmol 10 does not render surfaces.)
