Transforming E. coli with Yeast DNA... HOW!?

Dear Netters!

     I'm trying to check some yeast transformants by transforming E. coli with 
their DNA. The trouble is that I don't get any transformant of E. coli.

     How can I prepare the yeast DNA to get some transformants?

     It's important to quantify the DNA? If so, which is the optimal 
     Is there any trick to improve the transformation?

     If someone can help me, please send the answer to my personal account. I 
will post a summary of the answers I receive.

     Thanks a lot,
