Thanks for the input, guys.

One more question for anyone who is listening..

I have ripped out the carpet in preparation for the new flooring, and there are a number of squeaky spots...The flooring was installed with nails, and as far as I can tell they were a bit stingy with the number of nails used (hard to tell in some places because of the drywall mud and paint overspray)...

In any case, I'd like to take the time now to de-squeak the floor. My plan is 1-3/4" screws, at least in the squeaky areas...I have considered just re-fastening the whole floor to prevent future squeaks from cropping up. I have read 6" spacing at supported panel edges, and 12" spacing in the field. Is that a good plan? Is it worth doing, or should I just focus on the squeaky areas?
