You can use catdcd from the command line to convert a DCD into a
multiframe PDB. Consider using the -first, -last, -stride options to get
the number of frames you want, and the -i option to get rid of unwanted
atoms. I don't think you can coax catdcd into outputting one PDB per
frame, but chopping up the multiframe PDB is easily done, for instance
with the 'split' UNIX command.
