the greeen fibre boards are best thay are about 500mm square about 8mm thick they allow for any out of level on the floor and if used upstairs thay act as a good sound insulation too and can be cut easy with a knife

i would go for the green fibre underlay, it comes in the form of rectangular mats rather than on a roll, easy to cut with a Stanley knife, gives a nice solid feel to the floor and has better soundproof qualities than the roll underlays.
