Protocol for PCR straight from yeast colony?

There is a protocol for this in Supplement 25, Winter 1994 of the "Current
Protocols in Molecular Biology" "The Red Book Bulletin"

The title is Rapid PCR Sequencing of Plasmid DNA Directly from Colonies of
S. cerevisiae.  

If you do not have access to this book or the supplement I  could FAX
a copy to you if you provide me with you FAX number or alternatively I could 
mail it to you.
