awk cross-referencing between two files

I need to make my sloppy, existing code (non awk) more efficient and I seem to be terrible with awk Smilie

I've tried around quite a bit, maybe you guys can conjure up a quick solution...

ATOM  58276  HW2 SOL  18124     30.470  78.510 123.910

So basically what I need is this...

1) check every line of file1/column1 for values smaller than 3
2) if true then read value of file1/column3
3) cross-reference value of file1/column3 with value of file2/column5
4) if match found then delete line from file2

I've started with...

awk '{a[d++]=$1}END{for(i=1;i<=d;i++){ if ( a[i] < 3 ) print a[i] }}' < file1 basically I'm stuck with step 2) already.

Could you set me on the right track?
