error prone PCR

I would like to perform an error prone PCR reaction for a random
mutagenesis study. Can anybody inform me of a good protocol and
especially of a source for a good polymerase for this kind of reaction.

Another question, other subject: to do a site-directed mutagenesis by
PCR, how many bases should be inserted after the mutation to prevent
mismatch repair by Vent-polymerase? or should I better use another

Thanks in advance!
