S-parameter Amplifier Usage

I am using an amplifier that is defined with Sparameter data.  Using 50ohm terminations in an open loop analysis is not valid in our case.

1)   How does one typically proceed in this case?  We would like to use gathered S-parameter data in a non-50ohm analysis.

2)   I converted the S-parameters into Y parameters using Genesys.   Should I specify the data to be normalized to 50ohms in the linear data file?  What should the port impedances be defined as in the circuit?

Thanks.
