Installing Prehung Interior Doors

Which method of installation would you recommend? Using screws or nails? If screws, what size? How do you cover the countersunk holes? If nails, (I have a nail gun I am using for the trim) what size nails?

I use 3" screws. Countersink them, then cover the screw heads with wood putty or lightweight vinyl spackle.

On the trim. use nails that are long enough to go through the trim, the 1/2" of sheetrock, and about an inch into the stud. On the jamb side of the trim, a nail that is about 1/2" shorter.
