Merging gel files?

Question for your collective minds:

Yesterday, our 377-96 terminated a 7 hour run after 3.5 hours for no
apparent reason.  The gel image was created and the sequence looked
beautiful...to about 300 bases.  Realizing that I needed about 50 more
bases to form my contigs, I started the machine again and got what
appeared to be sequence characteristic of hours 3.5-6.5 of a usual 1200
scan/hr run.  However, I couldn't get Seq. Anal. 3.4 to decipher the data
from the latter run in any meaningful way (runs of 20 thymadines, 15
adenosines, etc. were common).  Now, I think that if I can merge the two
gel files into one mega-file, the analysis program should be able to
process the data properly.  Does anyone know how I might be able to do
this?

Due to the nature of the samples, simply redoing the reactions isn't possible.

Thanks in advance,

dave
