Spacing for screwing subfloor.


I'll be screwing and gluing a subfloor. What is the spacing of the subfloor. I'm guessing it's 6" around the perimeter and 10" in the field. Is that correct? Also, Is a 2-2 1/4" screw adequate?
Does anyone nail subfloors anymore?

Only if you like squeaks.

now hold on there, using the RIGHT nails will not result in squeaks. my floors are nailed, and i never had one squeak. but do not use smooth nails, of course. they will pull up and *presto* mousefloors. but what do i know? i'm just a mouse.

I can only find the code requirements for nails in the MA building code. I guess I'll have to give them a ring tomorrow.

Edit: 6/12 per manufacturer.
