The person at Home Depot was wrong. The "concrete backer board" refered to by LJ was right. It can be worked just like wood. it is a concrete/fiber product that can be nailed and sawed with regular tools. Be sure to make your vertical joints at the stud locations. It should be nailed with roofing nails. You should remove all the tile and replace the dry wall with the backer board (a small price to pay considering all the re-dos you'll be doing). Your tile can then be installed using "thin-set" This job will then last for years. Otherwise you will be re-doing this project again in a couple oy years.
Good luck. :)
