I would like to be able to select the Ribose cartoon and color it a different color than the DNA base.

    there's no object of that sort; it would be very difficult to implement this.

    Rick, your best bet is to use

    set cartoonRibose

    and then select the rings and color them using wireframe. It's not perfect, but it might serve your purpose.

    Selection in this case would be with SMARTS. Something like this:

    load =1d66
    display dna
    select ; cartoons only
    select DNA and within(smarts,"[r5&!a]")
    wireframe -0.2;color green
    set cartoonribose
    zoom {displayed}
