Hi Dan
Thats pretty much it.
Usually, T&G is nailed down through the tongue, but screws should work fine....however, if you screw down through the tongue, you will need to use the #6 casing head (that is, narrow head) screws and probably predrill the holes in the tongues (to keep it from splitting). I don't think I would put the screws through the face of the T&G.

Also, make sure your butt joints go over the joist, and secure down each edge where the two pieces join.
