There's a paper in press in NAR by Manivasakam, Schiestl and Weber
regarding length of homology required for targeted integration,
using PCR generated fragments. You might be able to get a preprint
for latest on transformation procedures etc. You can email Robert
Schiestl (schiestl at mbcrr.harvard.edu) or Mani (mani at mbcrr.....).
