installing underlayment

3/8 particle board is commonly used for sheet vinyl underlayment. would you butt the u/layment sheets tight together or leave a gap and fill and sand?

particle board will soak up adhesive before it get's a chance to cure.

Butt them or the gaps will eventually show thru the vinyl. If you use plywood, make sure the bad spots are filled and sanded.........same reason.
