Largest K10D print size?

A friend has asked about getting large prints of a couple of my images. She wasn't specific about the size, but I'm thinking 16x24" or 20x30". So the question is, what's the largest print size folks have made from their K10Ds?

There are special methods that can make images suitable for print on image 10 x 30 feet large, or even bigger. (think billboard)

I've done as big as 20x24 off the K10, and it looked swell.

I should have been more specific. These will hang in her living room, so assume a viewing distance of 4 to 6 feet.

24x36, if it's the full image (no cropping). I've done 16x24's, and I cannot see ANY digitization in the print (ISO 100). Much higher if other methods are used (interpolation software, etc.) Everyone else has already stated what needs to be said!

I've done 20x30 from my DS, which is 6MP. However, a larger image such as that should be viewed from at least 1-2 feet away.
