The RebBook has a protocol which I have used.  It works fine for me. 
However, I have not used it for a real southerns, only detection of T3/T&
oligos in a piece of phage DNA.  Thus, I had ng levels of DNA on the
filter, not pg.  This probably helps a lot.  Additionally, we use the
"GeneScreen" filter, which always seems tow rok really well for us.
