As I responded to you privately already, there is a lot of software 
out there which you can use. Amos Bairoch has assembled a very useful 
list of Molecular Biology Archives and Mailservers which is available 
on many FTP sites (at ours, it is in /info). With respect to query systems, 
the Sequence Retrieval Software (SRS), copyrighted by Thure Etzold, is 
just going into Beta testing. ATLAS from the PIR International as distributed
on their CD should also run on UNIX.

I already offered to you the services of the Swiss National EMBnet node. 
Nodes of the European Molecular Biology Network (EMBnet) are prepared 
to answer questions of this kind specifically and detailed.

Maybe you enlighten the audience what your UNIX is like. Unfortunately,
UNIX comes in so many flavours that you might fight very hard in 
hacking your code if you got a rare brand.
