I am new to digital and haven't tried to make quality prints yet. Can someone give me a basic primer, from start to finish? I have a Olympus C-5060, 5MP. So let's say I have an image that is a full-size, SHQ JPEG and I want to make an 8x10 print at a professional lab.

-what should the dpi setting be? should I change this before or after resizing and other processing?
-What format should I save in?
-Can I make a decent print without shooting in Tiff or RAW?
-How do I know if what looks good on my monitor will look good in print?
-What else do I need to know?

Thanks so much in advance.
