Stagger the roof sheathing with the ends of the sheets in one row in the middle of the next half-way.
Nail about every 8".
Good luck!

Great and thank you, i have been doing that with the decking but was not sure about the nails, and since the inspecters will now be comeing out to inspect how its nailed i thought i had better ask, And for any one out there if you are repairing or replaceing more than 100 square feet you had better get that permit, don't let people say you don't need one, your just repairing its. Not true. Thanks again Cliff
