Default Tiffs and stuff

Yep, it really does take a good two days to set up a computer after replacing the hard disk

XP itself was OK, but hardware driver installation can be such a pain (when is a PCI device not a PCI device? When it's an on-board audio chip, of course). After getting my Start menu nicely organised, I then had to go through the usual Adobe upgrade shenanigans on the phone (just as well it wasn't over a weekend, as they'd be closed), and I'm now installing Quark 4.1.

Quark is giving me the daunting task of having to choose between 8-bit or 24-bit colour tiffs, and grey tiffs of either 16 levels or 256 levels. Which should I choose, and does it really make any difference to compatibility and file interchange with clients?
