Most lab use RGB only, 300 pixal per inch (PPI) is recommendable, in jpg or tiff format should be fine. CMYK is for offset printing.
Hope this help.

No... no... no... CYMK is only used for off-set printing. For inkjet printers, although it's using CYMK inks, it is expecting RGB data. The internal conversion engine will do the conversion. If you feed it CYMK data, your photos will be flat and lifeless, not to mention your colours will be off.
Stay in RGB...

doesn't really matter but you need at least a 2M output but the more the merrier.

Would it be a problem if the colour workspace in my Photoshop 7.0 is sRGB instead of RGB?

If i were to change the resolution to 300PPI, the image size will be automatically changed to 3413 by 5120 which equates to 0.666601562.
Since it is not exactly in the 2/3 format, will i face any problem to print them in 4R size in photolabs?
