Transfecting primary neuronal cultures

I am trying to transfect various reporter constructs into primary
cultures of neurons.  My reporter is lacZ, so the cultures can contain
a mixture of cell types since the assay will be direct staining of the 
cells.  I have tried calcium phosphate methods without success and am 
interested in other methods which might work.

Any advice or guidance will be greatly appreciated.
