	If the size of the probe generated is a problem, may be you can try
one other alternative.  Since processivity of enzymes is one of the 
criteria determining the size of the probe, why not try the most processive
enzyme known (sequenase??) in the random primer labeling.  If anyone is
already using this system, can we learn of your experience?
