Default Printer Ready PDF: 10 ft x 4ft (resolution?)

ok guys,

I've never created any files that have ever gone over A3.

how can i prepare a PDF file so that 8 megapixel photos are super quality when printed at this scale. what's the "norm" for doing this kind of job?

type/graphics are vectors, so should the photos be vectorized? and if so, whats the best way to do that? (a good old trace in illustrator > then place in adobe indesign?)
