Apologies if this is already in a post somewhere (I didn't find it).
Basically, is a 4GB USB key big enough to create a bootable USB key with ML's InstallESD.dmg?

Thanks,

no

the app is over 4 gig and the install dmg expands to over 4 gig

Ah OK thanks.
But I can burn it to a 4.7GB DVD, right?

No. You will need a dual layer DVD.

OK thanks.
I'm glad I asked!

Is 8GB OK or do I need 16?
Also, what's the size of the OS, once installed on the hard drive?

8GB is enough
