Thanks, just want to check if this is right way to do this:
I defined atoms labeled *X* in the coord file and then I added this section 
into the SUBSYS:

    &KIND X
      GHOST .TRUE.
      CORE_CORRECTION 0.12   # 3/25

Is this the right way to divide for example 3*e* charge over 25 fake 
hydrogen atoms?
