Southwestern blotting

I would like to know if anybody can supply me with a reference or 
protocol for Southwestern blotting.  It is supposed to be a new (to 
me) technique in which you separate your proteins by gel 
electrophoresis and probe with DNA.  This would be very similar to a 
Western blot, but using DNA as macromolecular probe instead of antibodies.
Main questions are: should you use only non-denaturing gels, how big 
a fragment is needed, can you block non-specific binding with milk 
(like in Westerns), can you use nitrocellulose?

I'll apprecciate any feedback,
