5 Ft Bi-Fold door opening

I have a closet that I am planning on putting a 5 ft bi-fold door in. It is framed in witht he sheetrock hung and everything. I am ready to hang my door. I have purchased the door jamb pieces, but do not know what size the opening needs to be. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you installing a bifold where a bi-pass used to be?

You can't do it the way you've planned it. There are different types of bifold doors. Some are made to fit into a standard, framed opening. Others are made from standard doors and are put into a larger than standardly framed opening. You seem to be putting jambs into a previously unframed opening. You might not be able to find doors that will fit into this arbitrary space.
Supplying the exact opening dimensions(W & L) you originally have would help.
Also tell us what style doors you want to install.
