Hi gris,

First, Dave225 has pretty much given you the necessary info. I'd like to add that there's nothing like a good book. That's $$$ well spent.

Here are a couple of potentially useful links. Sleepers and Interesting Product

And lastly, some 'schools' suggest that the sleepers be set in mastic and installed w/concrete nails (which is best done w/a power nail gun that's specifically used for nailing in concrete. On the side, if you go this route, be SURE you are taught how to use it, and that you have a LOT of extra nails and shots, and that you know you can't re-use the 'bad hole' once a nail has been hit into a particular spot in the concrete.) You could always hire a pro to do the 'important stuff', and then do the rest of the job yourself. I don't know if you're including the carpet installation too as Can a layperson do this ... Of course, if you have more ?'s, post back.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
