Question: printing and megapixels

Hi guys,
I’m leaving for Thailand in a week to do some stories (journalism) and need to get some print quality images to accompany the words.

I’m wantto get a cheap slr camera body so I have more to spend on a decent lens(es). Thing I’m worried about is this: if the images were to be be printed A4 size or bigger, do I need to have an slr that’s over 6 megapixels?

I’ve pretty much decided to go with a Nikon D40 – but will it affect the clarity of the images if I have less than 10 megapixels (as with the D40x)?

Thanks for any feedback, it’s really appreciated :)
