ADL: Including water molecules in docking

Hi all,

I've noticed that in one of my structures there's a very stable-looking water molecule that might well allow for water-mediated hydrogen bonding when ligands bind. I also notice all water molecules get removed when converting the receptor pdb to pdbq. Is there any way to get Autodock to use this water molecule, for example perhaps by treating it as part of the binding site?

thanks for any input,
