Urgent noob questions?

Sorry about this as I'm sure al the info is here and in the user guide but I need to order a pocket HDD drive today to use for a SD bootable hard drive copy and, ultimately, Time Machine. I have an Intel MacBook with a 120 G hard drive (Mac Extended) and have the Leopard disc ready to upgrade from Tiger 10.4. So my queries:

1) What size of drive is recommended. My HDD has around 100 G still free. Will a 320 G drive be OK or is 500 better?

2) Does the user guide and/or elsewhere take me through EXACTLY what i need to do and how to do it regarding formatting the drive (to HFS?), partitioning it, what sizes of partition etc etc.

3) I have a firewire port so is a FW drive still better?

4) The site mentions drives being suggested in the user guide (I think). I can't find any? I've seen the compatible drives post but I am UK based and am trying to find details of drives that might be usable and available here.

Any help appreciated.
