ROKS input

Dear Matthias,

  I followed your suggestion on LOW_SPIN_ROKS, and ran geometry
optimization using the input file shown below. The calculation did go
through, but I am not sure if the calculation was on S1 (first singlet
excited state) PES since I have to specify the MULTIPLICITY to be 3
instead of 1 to avoid input errors. What do you think?

  Thank you very much.

Hanning
