"Floating" Drywall

Posted by Danny on April 7th, 2001 10:25 AM

My home's interior surface is old lath and plaster. Needless to say there are a few unsightly cracks. I would like to hang 3/8 drywall over the plaster as it would seem easier to repair. I have been told that I cannot screw or nail drywall directly to the walls, but rather it must be "floated". Does anyone know of this technique?
