Do you mean that you want to move genes around/map a mutation using the
transposable elements Tn9 or Tn10?  If so, the best place to look is in:

Miller, J.H. (1992)"A Short Course in Bacterial Genetics," Cold Sping Harbor
Laboratory Press,  ISBN 0-87969-349-5

If you need additional help, such as a protocol to get the Tn back out again
(don't have that ref to hand right now), drop me a msg.
