If the two chains are in one object, then you need to split them into two
objects. So if I'm working with the PDB file 1dvi, something like:
create cha, 1dvi & chain a
create chb, 1dvi & chain b
Then I can type:
set cartoon_cylindrical_helices, 1, chb
To make the chain B object have cylindrical helices, while chain A will
remain with the ribbon-style.
