    Try using the method of Lee and Taylor (see full reference below),
I've found this works perfectly well, producing a good yield of clean 
DNA perfectly suitable for restriction digestion and PCR work. 
    If you have trouble finding this reference then mail me directly
with your E-Mail address and I'll mail you back with the (modified) 
protocol that we use.
