Please can someone help.

I am trying to use the RDF GUI in vmd 1.8.5 (windows and linux).
I want to calculate the RDF of two types of lipids around another species in
my system. There are 119 lipid molecules of one type and 116 of the other.
Do I need to do some sort of normalisation before I can compare the RDFs, or
indeed is it possible to compare RDFs in this way?

Many thanks for your help,
