You might take a look at the manual :
- Generalised particles (to be used only for scoring): 240 = DOSE-EQ
section 5.1 note 6 especially)
- Description of card AUXSCORE
- Description of user routine fluscw.f if you need some other conversion
set, ie one of your own "kitchen" like I did sometimes.

Since a few versions deq99c.f routine (and the associated fluence to dose
conversion sets available) is included in fluka's code (version 2008.3 if
I'm right by one of our Authors could easily correct me if I'm wrong) if
you request (or activate it) by the use of 240.0 or DOSE-EQ generalised
particle in your detector (USRBIN, USRTRACK, USRBDX) and select the
adequate set and filter (to select the contribution of restricted type of
particle for instance) by means of AUXSCORE card.

Hope it helps.
