Anyone printed any 20x30 posters from a 6.1mp Pentax/Samsung DSLR? What's the biggest you can print and still have an acceptable print?

I have seen a very nice 20X30 from an 8MP camera, and 6 to 8MP is not much of a step up. I think for a normal viewing distance this image would look fine at 100 PPI. To test it out take an 800 by 1000 pixel image an print an 8X10 from it, this will be the same image resolution (printer DPI is another issue).
