Gamess is not a simple program to run. It requires careful study of the input format, and a certain degree of knowledge about the "nuts and bolts" of computational quantum chemistry. It is impossible to use the program efficiently without reading the user documentation, which can be downloaded here. There is an official Gamess homepage with some information about capabilities of program, donloading a copy yourself, and the history of Gamess.
HPCVL also provides support for the usage of programs that are installed on its clusters. You can get in touch with us via our contact page or by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org
