Default Starter for lager

Brewing a ten gallon Marzen soon and need to make a starter. Any tips on yeast, size and method? Do i need to create a starter as i would the beer, ie lager it? If so, how long does that process take and what size batch is suitable?

Many thanks.

+1 on Mr. Malty. Best info on the net about making starters...short of long sicentific-esq papers.
