Preparing to lay linolium

Hello, before laying linolium over kitchen subfloor I want to install 1/2" OSB with screws and liquid nails for a smooth surface. Will the OSB require spacing between the 4x8 sheets for expansion and if so, how large of a gap. Also, what kind of spacing should I have for the screws ? Thank you, Al

I did a similar job with a floor guy once & we didn't leave any space. Just make sure that the extra 1/2 height doesn't present any problems with doors or baseboards.
