What do you all use to prime the remainder of the wort with?

Primetabs, or has someone figured out how much cornsugar to dilute in an ammount of boiled water to mix with?

3/4 teaspoon for 12oz bottles or one teaspoon for a 16oz. No boiled water needed, just carefully dump it into the bottle with a 1/4 tsp measuring spoon, then rack on top.

I use the carb tabs. A bit more expensive, but a tad more convenient.

Corn sugar.

I made a ghetto carbonator for plastic pop bottles which has been working very well for me with extra beer.

+1 on both counts. This allows you to experiment with carbonation as well, by adding two or three tabs per bottle and then noting which bottles had two or three. Eventually you'll discover just how much to add for your particular tastes.
